Drawing Set



As part of nonprofits arts publication Esopus’ “artist project” series for Esopus 24, artist Marco Maggi created a removable sheet of tiny custom decals alongside a sheet of blank paper (cyan, magenta, or yellow, depending on the issue) and invited Esopus readers to fashion artworks from these two elements.


The removable pages from the project in Esopus 24.


Esopus
received nearly 80 submissions from a wide range of its readers, including artists Marilyn Minter, Kerry James Marshall, Thomas Nozkowski, Ellen Berkenblit, Paulo Bruscky, and Liliana Porter; screenwriters Joan Tewkesbury (Nashville) and Hampton Fancher (Blade Runner); poet Chantal Bizzini; architect Michael Arad (the 9/11 Memorial); and dozens of other subscribers, contributors, and colleagues. These remarkable artworks perfectly embody the Esopus Foundation's mission of breaking down barriers between creative disciplines—not to mention erasing those between artists and the general public.

And now you can view them too. See the results at Drawing Set, an exhibition at the New York Public Library's Jefferson Market Branch in the Library's Little Underground Gallery, from September 5th to October 7th, 2017.
