The Nothing That Is: A Drawing Show in 5 Parts
an exhibition in five parts about drawing, curated in collaboration with Bill Thelen, an artist, curator and educator based in Raleigh, NC. His work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally and he operates the influential and ambitious Lump Gallery in Raleigh. The exhibition will combine artists of national and international stature alongside works by artists based in this region. The various sections of the exhibition will explore the practice of drawing from the very traditional to conceptual practices to community-based activity. A previous iteration of this exhibition was presented at CAM-Raleigh.

Subdivision will continually evolve during its six-week duration as the artists selected by Lacher and Robinson incrementally build upon, alter, or reinvent one of the aforementioned sculptures “causing,” according to Robinson and Lacher, “the exhibition to develop in ways not entirely within anyone’s control.” As people gather for the exhibition’s opening on Tuesday, February 21, at 5pm, Andy Roche and Selina Trepp will be the first participating artists to respond to their assigned structure. Following suit on successive Fridays, artists Amanda Bowles and Erin Hayden, Alejandro T. Acierto, Thad Kellstadt, and collaborative duo Melissa Oresky and Zak Boerger, will “perform” their work with a free public event in the gallery. In the last week of the exhibition, the “subdivision” will have changed from a conglomeration of similar architectural forms to a mash-up of different aesthetics, styles, practices, materials, and tastes—from a series of houses to a community of neighbors.
