The Viewing Program offers emerging artists valuable opportunities to engage in a critical discussion of their work through one-on-one meetings with the Viewing Program Curator at The Drawing Center and to have images of their work placed on file in the Artist Registry. The Artist Registry is used by The Drawing Center’s curatorial staff and is open to other arts professionals (including curators, gallerists, and scholars). Approximately three times per year The Drawing Center presents group shows of emerging and under-represented artists curated from the Viewing Program and Artist Registry’s pool of 2,500 artists. Artists are eligible to submit their work for consideration for the Viewing Program and Artist Registry if they do not have an affiliation with a New York gallery and are not currently attending school. Artists from across the country and abroad are encouraged to apply. For complete information on submissions, visit the web site, www.drawingcenter.org.
