I draw, therefore I think
11th September – 23rd October 2021
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.
