24 hour drawing project

This Friday, the Warehouse Theater & Gallery in Washington, D.C., will host the fifth occurrence of the 24-Hour Drawing Project, an international collaboration between Kendall Nordin and Hannah Bertram.

Conceived and first performed by Nordin and Bertram in Melbourne, Australia, in 2005, the project involves a group of artists who work for 24 hours in a row. During the project’s duration, the working space is open to the public.

There is no exhibition after the conclusion of the event.

The artists involved are not obliged to “draw” in the traditional sense. They may instead work on any act of art involving what the project’s founders call “intensive attention or effort.” The atmosphere will be what you, the visitors, make of it.

Please join us for this endurance art experience.
