I draw, there­fore I think

11th September – 23rd October 2021
SOUTH SOUTH

Anna Schwartz Gallery is par­tic­i­pat­ing in SOUTH SOUTH’s inau­gur­al cura­to­r­i­al project I draw, there­fore I think, curat­ed by Jitish Kallat.

Peter Tyn­dall, Vivi­enne Shark LeWitt, and Chi­haru Shio­ta will present their work along­side 60 artists across 29 coun­tries from 28 gal­leries, reflect­ing on the rela­tion­ship between draw­ing, the pro­duc­tion of ideas and the evo­lu­tion­ary aspects of existence.

The exhi­bi­tion is prompt­ed by Charles Darwin’s 1837 sketch Tree of Life’ in which he scrib­bled down a frame­work for his spec­u­la­tions about evo­lu­tion in one of his first trans­mu­ta­tion note­book”. This intu­itive draw­ing of an evo­lu­tion­ary tree is head­lined by the words I think’ and is a pre­cur­sor to Darwin’s rad­i­cal the­o­ry of evo­lu­tion, com­mon descent, dif­fer­en­tial sur­vival and nat­ur­al selection.

The project will branch out into the oth­er aspects, includ­ing a series of con­ver­sa­tions with artists and curators.
