Lea Cetera and Alexandra Lerman Participate in Group Exhibition at The Drawing Center
December 16, 2015
Lea Cetera ’12 and Alexandra Lerman ’12 are taking part in the group exhibition Open Sessions 6 at The Drawing Center. The show, curated by the participating artists with Lisa Sigal and Nova Benway, will run until December 20.
Open Sessions is an ongoing program created by Sigal and Benway that seeks, in the gallery’s words, to help artists “find new approaches for contextualizing and exhibiting their work, through conversation, public programs, and gallery installations.” This sixth iteration of the series includes the work of nine artists, including Cetera and Lerman.
Cetera contributed to the exhibition with Beige Shelf, which, according to a statement released by the gallery, “is part of a series of new sculptures by the artist that combine the aesthetics of vector drawings, minimalist sculpture, security window grating and modern design.” Lerman has two works in the exhibition: Circulation Drawing. Lab, which “uses touch-screen gestures designed to interface with the iPhone to draw the circulation pattern of visitors through The Drawing Center's Lab exhibition space,” and Memory Negative. Holds, a sculpture that “addresses the relationship between the natural and artificial environments of boulders and climbing gyms, as well as the ways in which the contemporary body is forced into conflict with itself and encounters its physical limits in its everyday relationship with architecture and technology.”
Cetera has performed and exhibited at galleries and museums such as Art in General, Sculpture Center, the Jewish Museum, Disjecta Contemporary Art Center, Southard Reid, Pilar Corrias, Simone Subal, High Desert Test Sites, Poetry Project at St. Marks Church on the Bowery and Anthology Film Archives, and has participated in Portugal Arte 2010 and the New Wight Biennial 2012.
