This new gorgeous and diverse collection documents the exhibition 00 at the Barbara Gladstone Gallery in New York. For this exhibition, over one hundred prominent contemporary artists were asked to submit works on paper that were made this year--in '00'. 00 investigates the act of drawing as a vital necessity that transcends the bounds of age, nationality, scale, content, process, and concept. The richness of the medium is reflected by the diversity of the participating artists, who include: Acconci Studio, Kai Althoff, John Baldessari, Miroslaw Balka, Matthew Barney, John Bock, Louise Bourgeois, Cecily Brown, Vija Celmins, Francesco Clemente, Michael Craig-Martin, John Currin, Roy Dowell, Marlene Dumas, Carroll Dunham, Rachel Feinstein, Tim Gardner, April Gornik, Arturo Herrera, Gary Hume, Sol LeWitt, Anish Kapoor, Ellsworth Kelly, Yayoi Kusama, Mark Manders, Brice Marden, Chris Ofili, Elizabeth Peyton, Elle Phelan, Lari Pittman, Richard Prince, Charles Ray, Gregor Schneider, Richard Serra, Serse, Takashi Murakami, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Rosemarie Trockel, Kara Walker, Lawrence Weiner, and Christopher Wool. The resulting exhibition and its accompanying catalogue--including an illuminating essay by the curator and writer Klaus Kertess--act as a definitive survey of the practice of drawing at the present moment.
