Core Sample is one of five exhibitions presented in The Lab between October 2018 and December 2019 as part of the third cycle of The Drawing Centers Open Sessions program. These thematic group shows are conceived and organized by Rosario Güiraldes and Lisa Sigal, Open Sessions Curators, together with participating artists. In the second year of the program cycle, Open Sessions Curators also organize a full-museum exhibition to which all Open Sessions artists contribute work that best manifests and/or expands the meaning and relevance of drawing today. Core Sample: Open Sessions 13 explores drawn marks as a way to locate place on a sheet of paper or to suggest the expanse of geospatial time travel. Symbolic gestures borrowed from mythic worlds alongside references to the everyday offer insight into the artists’ varied traditions, identities, and cultures. Core Sample: Open Sessions 13 features the work of Alex Callender, Liz Collins, Dennis RedMoon Darkeem, Zatara McIntyre, Johanna Unzueta, and Cosmo Whyte.
