As a member of the CBIG Childrens' Book Illustrators Group, based in NYC, I will be one of the artists to paint the gallery walls (today, Feb. 16, 2014) in a Collective Participatory Artwork at the New Museum in New York City. This is part of the New Museums's first US Exhibition for Pawel Althamer which features the Artist's Iconic Portraits and Sculpture Workshop.
The exhibition will include a new presentation of the artist’s work, Draftsmen’s Congress, originally presented at the 7th Berlin Biennial. During the course of the exhibition, the blank white space of the New Museum’s Fourth Floor gallery will be transformed through the gradual accumulation of drawings and paintings by invited Art organizations, including the CBIG.
