Non-Declarative Art explores ambiguity and the rejection of overt meaning in the work of thirteen emerging artists selected from the Viewing Program. The exhibition presents drawing-based work that ranges from pointed to trivial in subject matter, from perfection in craft to studied clumsiness.

From September 14 to October 18, 2007, The Drawing Center will present Non-Declarative Art: Selections Fall 2007, featuring the work of thirteen emerging artists selected from the Viewing Program. The artists in Non-Declarative Art intelligently explore ambiguity, the minimization of information, and the rejection of overt meaning. By obscuring clear and obvious readings, these works allow for open-ended interpretation, empowering the viewer and activating the viewing experience.

Participating artists include: Susan Goethel Campbell, Gianna Commito, Michael Diaz, Jeff Feld, Sabine Finkenauer, Prajakti Jayavant, Steven Lowery, Howard Rosenthal, Jay Sheldon, Jered Sprecher, John Tallman, Sally Tittmann, and Gregor Wright. Non-Declarative Art: Selections Fall 2007 is curated by Luis Camnitzer.

The exhibition will be accompanied by Drawing Papers 71, a 32-page edition of The Drawing Center's publication series, containing statements by each artist and black-and-white images of works in the exhibition, as well as an introduction by Luis Camnitzer.
