How does looking at a drawing—an inherently portable art object—change the way we experience time and history? Which histories endure and which are lost? This theory-and-practice symposium will feature artists and art historians who are engaging with Old Master drawings and prints in innovative ways, using their portability as a model for re-thinking history. Speakers include Steffani Jemison, visual artist; Alexander Nagel, Director of Graduate Studies and Professor of Fine Arts, New York University; Lorenzo Clayton, professor emeritus of printmaking at The Cooper Union; Timothy Corbett, designer; Brett Littman, Executive Director of The Drawing Center; and Katie Anania, postdoctoral fellow, the Morgan Drawing Institute.

Following the presentations, Nova Benway, Assistant Curator at The Drawing Center, will moderate a panel discussion with the speakers.

Tickets: Free admission, online reservations requested
