Stephen Friedman Gallery. Online Viewing Room. Frieze New York 2020 Edition. Drawn to Sculpture. 6–22 May 2020
In 1933, the Museum of Modern Art in New York staged an ‘Exhibition of Drawings by Sculptors’ that included work by Constantin Brâncu?i, Henri Gaudier-Brzeska and Isamu Noguchi. The accompanying press release stated: “Sculptors seem to think of their work in drawing as divided into two classes: one a type of study drawing made previous to an actual work of sculpture; the other a drawing conceived as a thing in itself.” This Online Viewing Room similarly identifies the different ways in which drawing informs the sculptural practices of artists, bringing together works by Claire Barclay, Melvin Edwards, Tom Friedman, Kendell Geers, Jim Hodges, Yinka Shonibare CBE, David Shrigley and Jiro Takamatsu. The presentation includes personal commentaries from a number of the artists explaining the relationship between drawing and sculpture in their practices.
