The Anyspace pop-up gallery will open Drawings’ Conclusions: The Ends of the Line, on Tuesday, January 16, 2018, at 59 Franklin Street, in Tribeca. Curated by Jeffrey Kipnis, produced by Andrew Zago and Laura Bouwman, and first shown at the SCI-Arc Gallery in Los Angeles, the show assembles work by 13 architects that engages in the conceptual, technical, and sometimes personal potential of drawing during the time of architecture’s transition from hand drawing to digital representation.
The 60 drawings, made in the late 1980s, 1990s, and early 2000s, are by:
Stan Allen, New York City; Andrew Atwood & Anna Neimark, Los Angeles; Preston Scott Cohen, Cambridge, MA; Greg Lynn, Los Angeles; Ben Nicholson, Chicago; Philip Parker, New York City; Jesse Reiser & Nanako Umemoto, New York City; Bahram Shirdel, Tehran; Stephen Turk, Columbus, OH; Michael Young, New York City; Andrew Zago, Los Angeles

A project of the Anyone Corporation, Anyspace launched its first pop-up architectural exhibition in July 2017 with the widely acclaimed This Future Has a Past, on Los Angeles architect Gregory Ain’s 1950 Museum of Modern Art House in the Garden, originally shown in the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale. Anyone is a New York–based nonprofit architecture think tank that produces the journal Log (2003–present) and the Writing Architecture series books (1995–present), which are published with MIT Press. The Anyone Corporation also co-curated the US Pavilion for the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale.
Anyspace is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and by supporters of the Anyone Corporation.
