OUVRETESYEUX presents MASTER NOW

NOW IS OUR FUTURE

Since DRAWING NOW PARIS initiated the very first salon devoted to contemporary drawing in 2007, an expert committee has been entrusted with overseeing gallery selection. Some fifteen collectors, art critics, institutional representatives, and other art connoisseurs have devotedly formed selective choices over the past decade. In tribute to their efforts, as well as to celebrate the salon’s 10th anniversary, we have asked all willing committee members to appoint an artwork by an emerging artist that, in their view, exemplifizes a distinctive aspect of contemporary drawing.
Whether these pieces stem from their personal collections, artist studios, or from galleries, the artworks thus assembled will showcase the richness of artistic expression today.
