DESCRIPTION
This show emphasizes the action aspect of making a drawing. The selection of  works on paper from MOMA's permanent collection all link the act of mark making with a conceptual  time based medium of performance.  The show included drawings linked to action painting, works from the 60's and 70's when avant-garde artists used actions and happenings as works of art, as well as some contemporary work.
