Brett Littman, Executive Director of The Drawing Center — is the only fine arts institution in the United States to focus solely on the exhibition of drawings –, will present a lecture entitled “From Lascaux Caves to Autocad.” A wide range of issues will be explored, including: What is the relevance of drawing in contemporary culture? How does one define the activity of drawing today? What does it mean to expand the definition of drawing to encompass architecture, design, music, science, dance? This talk will also explore the curatorial decisions that have shaped the Drawing Center’s upcoming programming.
