“Drawing Time, Reading Time”

at Drawing Center,
35 Wooster St.

This quietly composed group exhibition explores an ambiguous zone of mark-making that lies between writing and drawing. In work by artists including Allen Ruppersberg, Carl Andre and Molly Springfield, written language can be both a bearer of meaning and a purely abstract form. Viewers engaging with the pseudoscripts, concrete poems, handwritten manuscripts and book-like sculptures on view find themselves constantly shifting between acts of reading and looking.
