An Atlas of Drawings, Part One

Drawings Galleries. Third floor

Transforming Chronologies is a two-part exhibition that approaches the drawings collection from a new direction, presenting works not by date but by specific sequences of forms.

Just as anthropologists see a myth as the summation of all of its many versions, we may say that in art history a form, motif, or theme is the sum of its variations and differences.

Transforming Chronologies is a curatorial application of this concept, suggesting that the meaning of a work of art depends not only on its own internal structures but also on its relationships to other works.

The exhibition explores the possibilities of these interactions by presenting drawings in groupings intended to provoke transformations of meaning, both among themselves and in the way viewers perceive them.

Organized by Luis Perez-Oramas, Adjunct Curator, Department of Drawings.

The exhibition is supported by Gonzalo Parodi.

The accompanying publication is made possible by the Mimi and Peter Haas Fund.
