Drawing Night

25 January 2017 / 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for a special Drawing Night, in collaboration with the International Studio & Curatorial Program opening CIMA’s unique and intimate setting to students and artists and encouraging them to interact with, analyze, and draw inspiration from Giorgio de Chirico and Giulio Paolini’s works.

Naomi Campbell, ISCP 2016–17 artist in residence, will lead the event by opening with reflections on her artistic practice, drawing, and questions raised by the works on exhibition at CIMA. Participants will have the opportunity to sketch for approximately an hour, before coming back together to discuss the works and share insights into what was learned in the process.

Paper has been provided by the legendary Italian papermaker Fabriano, who recently celebrated the 750th anniversary of papermaking in Fabriano, Italy.

Limited to 30 participants. Ticket: $8, free for CIMA Members.
