When the pandemic took hold in early 2020, artists everywhere turned to drawing—art’s most essential medium—to make sense of the profoundly changed world around them. A selection of this work is brought together in “100 Drawings From Now,” a group show at the downtown exhibition space featuring drawings from more than 100 artists.

All made during the first part of 2020—which also saw the beginning of a nation-wide reckoning over race and police brutality—the works on view capture the sadness, strangeness, uncertainty, isolation, and self-reflection that have marked this most turbulent year. Maurizio Cattelan, R. Crumb, Amy Sillman, Katherine Bernhardt (pictured above), Francesco Clemente, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Cecily Brown, and Cauleen Smith are among the featured artists.
