David Park and His Circle
The Drawing Sessions
Organized to accompany David Park: A Retrospective, this exhibition examines the weekly figure drawing sessions initiated by Park, Elmer Bischoff, and Richard Diebenkorn in 1953. These artists’ gatherings, which expanded during the decade to include additional friends and colleagues, were held in each other’s Bay Area studios with hired models, both male and female. Together, the artists focused on mastering the human form by repeatedly drawing models in various poses, and experimenting with both traditional and alternative materials. The show features thirty-three drawings and two sketchbooks that capture the dynamic and collegial nature of these sessions.
Exhibition Dates: Until January 18, 2021
Exhibition Hours: Open Friday–Monday from 10 a.m.–5 p.m. and Thursday from 1 p.m.–8 p.m; Closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Venue: San Francisco MoMA, 151 Third St, San Francisco, CA 94103
