Terry Winters: Facts and Fictions at The Drawing Center

The Drawing Center will present an overview of Terry Winters’s drawings from 1980 to the present, the first such exhibition in the United States, on view from April 6 to August 12. Terry Winters: Facts and Fictions will include a selection of large-scale works on paper and a wide span of smaller drawings as well as a suite of rarely seen drawings created between 2006 and 2016 in vitrines. Unlike typical retrospectives, this presentation will be organized with an eye to morphological relationships so that, as viewers move through the gallery, they will recall and ideally return to earlier related images. The show will foreground the overarching theme of Winters’s practice: the impulse to make sense, however fictively, of the manner in which the visible world is constructed and received. Organized by Claire Gilman, Chief Curator.

The Drawing Center has organized a series of public programs to coincide with the exhibition:

Thursday, May 3, 6:30 PM
Chief Curator Claire Gilman and Terry Winters will lead a walkthrough of the exhibition.

Thursday, May 17, 2018, 6:30 PM
As part of the series The Artist’s Eye, in which an artist who has previously shown at The Drawing Center shares her or his perspective on a current exhibition, New York-based artist Cecily Brown will lead a walkthrough of Terry Winters: Facts and Fictions.

Tuesday, July 10, 6:30 PM
The Drawing Center will host a performance by the artist Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe in which Lowe will respond to Winters’s work. This event will take place in conjunction with the biennial programming of the Racial Imaginary Institute, an organization formed to activate public conversations about race.
