It is time artist Suzanne Lacy learns to draw, and in this ten-day installation at The Drawing Center, artist Andrea Bowers will attempt to rectify this essential artistic illiteracy in Lacy’s oeuvre. Andrea Bowers and Suzanne Lacy: Drawing Lessons will consist of drawing lessons provided by Bowers over the course of ten days as a platform for conversations; resultant drawings; video projection; and the installation of the lesson environment—lights, platform, drawing easels, etc. As they work together under the scrutiny of a video camera, Bowers and Lacy will explore in work and conversation questions they engage with in their practices in general. For example: what are the roles and problematics of representation in public practice art? How do artists reconcile activist and field-based practices with the necessities of production for gallery and museum? What is the relationship between first and second generation Feminism? What is the role of venue, object, and style in the identification, historification, and evaluation of art? As this is an intensive and actual attempt to teach Lacy to draw, lessons will last four hours per day with drawing practice in between sessions for a total of six hours per day.
