Scenographia at Treasures from Chatsworth

  • Sotheby's New York 1334 York Ave New York, NY 10021 USA (map)

Creativity. Craftsmanship. Beauty. Entering the world through the human hand, these characteristics of drawing bring vibrancy and wonder into our lives. In conjunction with the ICAA, Scenographia will host a marathon live-drawing event to celebrate the human capacity to create. Staged before a live audience, architects Matt McNicholas and Elizabeth McNicholas will hand-draw an original composition inspired by the Sotheby’s Treasures from Chatsworth collection. The completion of the mural over the course of two days will demonstrate the value hand-drawing provides in preserving the human imagination in an interpretive and tangible form. By incorporating both the artists and the audience as equal participants in the creation, Scenographia at Treasures of Chatsworth will simultaneously act as a performance and exhibition in celebration of the experiential, originative, and artistic nature of hand-drawing and human endeavor.
