Nov 12 - Dec 21, 2019
An exhibition of New York artist William Anastasi’s Blind Drawings, a group of elegant works on paper created over a fifty-year period using various 'unsighted' strategies. In 1977, William Anastasi began playing chess with John Cage. At that time, Anastasi was living in Harlem and would travel to Cage’s 18th Street apartment via the subway. The journey became the perfect opportunity to revive his earlier experiments with the creation of seismographic unsighted drawings. With a sheet of paper on his lap, Anastasi allowed the movement of the subway to make the drawing.
