Degrees of Density: Selections from the Flatfiles of the Kentler International Drawing Space
The Kentler International Drawing Space, located in Brooklyn, N.Y., is dedicated to contemporary drawings and works on paper. Each year, the Kentler invites a curator to select a show from its drawing flatfiles. This year, Marilyn Symmes of the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University is the curator of Degrees of Density: Selections from the Flatfiles of the Kentler International Drawing Space. Symmes selected 54 contemporary drawings that prompt insights about what is possible in drawing and about fundamental aspects of nature. Because of space limitations, the Arkansas Arts Center will mount some of the drawings on the gallery walls and present the rest of the works in a flatfile storage system. Half way through the show the Arkansas Arts Center will switch the works on the walls with those in the flatfile drawers.
