9780979757549: Draw It with Your Eyes Closed: The Art of the Art Assignment

Draw It with Your Eyes Closed: the Art of the Art Assignment, is a unique and wide-ranging anthology featuring essays, drawings, and assignments from over 100 contributors including: John Baldessari, William Pope.L, Mira Schor, Rochelle Feinstein, Bob Nickas, Chris Kraus, Liam Gillick, Amy Sillman, James Benning, and Michelle Grabner. Practical and quixotic in equal parts, the art assignment can resemble a riddle as much as a recipe, and often sounds more like a haiku, or even a joke, than a clear directive. From introductory exercises in perspective drawing to graduate-level experiments in societal transformation, the assignment coalesces ideas about what art is, how it should be taught, and what larger purpose it might, or might not, serve. The book is a written record of an evolving oral tradition. Bringing together hundreds of assignments, anti-assignments, and artworks from both teachers and students from a broad range of institutions, Draw It with Your Eyes Closed serves as an archive and an instigation, a teaching tool and a question mark, a critique and a tribute.

Review:

A mischievous and nourishing new book... Here's what Paper Monument's editors, in this slim book, have had the wit to do: They've asked dozens of artists and teachers, some well known and some not, to speak about the best art assignments they ve given or received or even heard of. The results are aimed at M.F.A.-level teachers, but these 89 entries are accessible to anyone, many even to children. Like the conversation in the final hour of a boozy art opening, these small anecdotal essays mix gossip, profundity, bogosity and lecherousness in equal parts. The book is buzzy and wild, like real talk. --Dwight Garner, the New York Times

The more than eighty contributions by big guns like John Baldessari and up-and-comers like Margaret Lee range from sound advice (Dan Torop: 'Most art students, if lucky, will become basic practitioners, not flashy dragon-lords, and should have a straightforward way of working') to instructions that sound fun to follow, whether you're an aspiring Leonardo or not (Heather Hart: 'Take an 18x24 inch piece of paper and make a drawing using nothing but your car'). --The New Yorker

A delightful, useful book... Some respondents elaborate on the value of the art assignment to their pedagogy, while others do not; some are serious, some are funny, and many manage to be both. These particular assignments are memorable not for the artworks that resulted but for the projects' attempts to encourage critical and responsive thinking to question preconceptions about where art comes from, how it might function and its place in contemporary life. --Stephen Maine, Art in America
