“The Intuitionists” is a collaborative project by artists Heather Hart, Steffani Jemison, and Jina Valentine. Inspired by Colson Whitehead’s novel The Intuitionist, the exhibition considers how the collection, the database, and the aggregate serve as complementary models for the organization of information and objects in flux. Using the keywords that organize The Drawing Center’s Viewing Program database (e.g., “autobiographical,” “geometric,” “historical,” “consumer culture”) as a point of departure, the exhibition installation will feature works and ephemera by over sixty artists who are members of the Viewing Program. The Lab will feature a collaboration by the artist-curators inspired by Whitehead’s book The Intuitionist, using letters of the alphabet to form an interpretive drawing.
Curated by Heather Hart, Steffani Jemison, and Jina Valentine. Organized Lisa Sigal, Open Sessions Curator.
