"Drawn Together by Chance"


  • Drawing Room 479 Washington Street Providence, RI, 02903 United States

During the months of April and May, the Drawing Room is proud to partner with RHD-RI on a series of drawing collaborations inspired by Oblique Strategies.

Oblique Strategies was a box of cards created by Brian Eno and Eric Schmidt in 1975. Each card offers an aphorism intended to help artists (particularly musicians) break creative blocks by encouraging lateral thinking.

RHD and TDR will make their own set of cards. The artists will use them for inspiration and to interact with each other through drawing and visual language on a series of panels that will be displayed at the end of the project.

The weekly progress will be throughly documented and shared online. The hope is to inspire, build community and challenge and push the boundaries of drawing in a supportive environment.

The work will take place every Tuesday from April 7 to May 19 @ 11:00am to 1:30pm. The public is encouraged to visit.
