Drawing for a Drawing
Closing Activation for Linda Kohen: Spare Room
Piero Atchugarry Gallery invites the Miami community to participate in an international drawing exchange with artist Linda Kohen.
We are opening a space dedicated to our drawing exchange between Miami locals and Uruguayan artist Linda Kohen. Bring in a drawing or create one in our workshop space! Drawing supplies will be provided. All drawings exchanged will be displayed on the gallery’s website and sent to Kohen in Montevideo, where she lives and works.
In September of 2020, Linda Kohen presented her solo exhibition, Spare Room, at Piero Atchugarry Gallery in Miami. The exhibition included Kohen’s most recent works made in isolation earlier that year, alongside a selection from her autobiographical oeuvre dating back to the 1980s. The 96-year-old artist created over 100 drawings during the pandemic, and mounted the entire exhibition remotely from her studio in Montevideo. As a final activation for her exhibition, Kohen has proposed an exchange of drawings: one of yours, for one of hers.
Each participant is invited to create one drawing to be exchanged for an original drawing by Linda Kohen. The final day to submit a drawing is January 30th, after which the collected drawings will be sent to Kohen in Montevideo, where she still lives and works. We will also be sharing all of the submitted drawings alongside those by Kohen on our website.
- We will only be accepting drawings in person at our Miami gallery during our regular hours (Wednesday–Saturday, 11-5pm)
- Drawings larger than 8 1⁄2” x 12” cannot be accepted.
- Drawings received after the January 30th deadline cannot be accepted.
