Drop-in Public Tour: James Drake: Anatomy of Drawing and Space

Event Title: Drop-in Public Tour: James Drake: Anatomy of Drawing and Space
Event Description:

This exhibition represents the culmination of two years of active creation by contemporary artist James Drake. Drake’s confidence as an artist and virtuosity as a draftsperson is reflected in the resulting 1,249 drawings, a retrospective reckoning of his overriding themes of order and chaos, life and death, legacy and innovation. Contemporary and traditional both, the drawings serve as an echo of Drake’s studio—the artist’s mind played out on epic scale.

B scene: Exquisite Corpse

Event Title: B scene: Exquisite Corpse
Event Description:

Discover the mind-bending world of the exquisite corpse at the Blanton Museum! Based on an old parlor game, Exquisite Corpse invites participants to write a phrase or draw a picture on a sheet of paper, fold the paper to conceal part of it, and pass it on to the next player for his or her contribution. The idea originated with the Surrealists in Paris in 1925 when the first compiled phrase was, “Le cadavre exquis boira le vin nouveau." ("The exquisite corpse shall drink the new wine.")

Explore the mind of artist James Drake in the new exhibition, James Drake: Anatomy of Drawing and Space (Brain Trash). Bringing the party to life will be the Dead Music Capital Band, who will provide some macabre music mashups that will boggle your brains. Later, THAT Damn Band will scare up some exquisite corpses on the dance floor with their phantasmagoric musical stylings.

Join in on all the fun at B scene by taking a tour of the exhibition, creating some exquisite corpse art with Shea Little of EAST and Big Medium, devouring a bite (of food), imbibing a cocktail, and finding your dark groove on the dance floor. Advance copies of the 2014 E.A.S.T. catalogue will be available.
