Derek Sullivan and Gareth Long, The Dictionary of Received Ideas (Galley # 5) (2010).

Drawing workshop with Derek Sullivan

February 21, 2015 - 1 PM to 4 PM

Derek Sullivan offers a drawing workshop-as-roundtable for all ages. The artist proposes to use drawing as a means to come to understandings and misunderstandings about things. The group will collectively mine back issues of Artforum magazine from the Artexte collection in order to create a sequence of drawings that will be reproduced as a photocopied publication.
