Charles Darwin, Tree of Life, 1837 | Classmark: DAR 121 | Reproduced by kind permission of the Syndics of Cambridge University Library
SOUTH SOUTH is delighted to announce the first of its Curatorial Projects titled I draw, therefore I think curated by artist and curator Jitish Kallat. This drawing project is prompted by Charles Darwin’s 1837 sketch ‘Tree of Life’ in which he scribbled down a framework for his speculations in his first “transmutation notebook”.
One exhibition. Two ways to view.
I draw, therefore I think can be viewed as an artwork-led viewing room and an interactive Miro board produced in collaboration with the Open Window Institute, allowing for multiple forms of engagement throughout the project’s duration. On the Miro board your name and cursor will be visible on screen and you will be able to communicate and collaborate with others on the board.
12 Hour Live Collaborative Drawing Event | 9 October
Join a selection of artists, gallerists and curators in a 12-hour long live and interactive drawing event on the Miro board. This event will also include conversations on evolutionary processes in nature, thought and artmaking.
