I would like to thank Heather Hart, Steffani Jemison, and Jina Valentine for their unique spirit of intuitive investigation over the past year and a half. It was a privilege to work with them on The Intuitionists, my first curatorial project at The Drawing Center and the last Selections exhibition. I look forward to continuing working with Heather, Steffani, and Jina in the coming year as Open Sessions artists. The Intuitionists is deeply inspired by the ideas of Colson Whitehead, and we thank him for his support and generous contribution. I am also indebted to Sarah Workneh, Co-Director of the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, who inspired The Drawing Center’s collaboration with Heather, Steffani, and Jina and who advised Nova Benway and me to conceive of Open Sessions, our new program. The Drawing Center’s staff proved very valuable in realizing this exhibition. Special thanks to Brett Littman, Executive Director, and especially to Nova Benway, Assistant Curator, and Chelsea Cater, Open Sessions intern, who were invaluable in organizing a million details. Thanks also to Molly Gross, Communications Director; Anna Martin, Registrar; Dan Gillespie, Operations Manager; Alice Stryker, Development Manager; Hannah Cloepfil, Special Events & Public Programs; Margaret Sundell, Executive Editor; Joanna Ahlberg, Managing Editor; and Peter J. Ahlberg / AHL&CO, Designer. Finally, I am very appreciative of The Drawing Center’s Board of Directors as well as The Evelyn Toll Family Foundation and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs for their steadfast support of this exhibition and its accompanying publication.

Introduction

Lisa Sigal

From 1977 to 2014, the Viewing Program and its curated artist registry have epitomized The Drawing Center’s mission to broadly reflect on drawing as an evolving and responsive medium. Culled from an open application process, the registry—which features over 2,500 artists from around the globe and at all stages of their careers— has served as an important resource for curators, educators, and drawing enthusiasts. In addition, its participants have been featured in the annual exhibition series, Selections, typically organized by the Viewing Program Curator. For its final iteration, The Drawing Center has, instead, invited artists Heather Hart, Steffani Jemison, and Jina Valentine to develop an exhibit that engages and, in some sense, celebrates the Viewing Program’s thirty-seven-year-old archive. Hart, Jemison, and Valentine have worked together for a number of years on various projects. In the summer of 2005, while residents at the Maine artist colony Skowhegan, Hart and Valentine created the performance-event The Black Lunch Table, based on their experience of self-segregation during communal meals at residences and colonies. Realizing that no such “black table” had spontaneously coalesced, the artists self-consciously staged one, seizing the opportunity to initiate a dialogue about their existence that would raise

important questions regarding social divisions. In 2010, Jemison organized Future Plan and Program, a DIY publishing project featuring newly commissioned literary works by visual artists of color. Skowhegan’s director Sarah Workneh introduced me to the work of Hart, Jemison, and Valentine through “The Present Classification”— their proposal for a collaborative exhibition and performance centering on text-based art by black alumni of Skowhegan—which appeared in the 2012 edition of the Skowhegan Journal. The beautifully crafted proposition elaborates the three artists’ shared interest in collections, collectives, accumulation, and reclassification through association, via a maze of Borgesian references that poetically interweave ideas about language (a “collection” of words), observations on the associations and divisions in collectives, and the reflections of such mentor-figures as Susan Stewart, Giorgio Agamben, Deleuze and Guattari, and Michel Foucault. (In the preface to The Order of Things, Foucault imagines the meeting ground for all classified creatures in a space created by language, where the dis/similar find common ground and therein communality.) On the strength of “The Present Classification,” I asked Hart, Jemison, and Valentine to develop a method for organizing an exhibition derived from the Viewing Program’s sprawling online database that would take into account the self-identifications of its members (who must classify their portfolios under a series of searchable keywords: “abstraction,” “surrealism,” “feminism,” etc.) The result is The Intuitionists—a project inspired by the 1999 novel by Brooklyn-based author Colson Whitehead, from which it takes its name. Whitehead’s story describes a version of New York City in a time that feels both past and future, when civil rights, labor unions, and integration were new issues. The protagonist, an African-American woman, is the city’s first and only female elevator inspector. She becomes caught in the struggle between two competing schools of evaluation: “The Intuitionists,” whose method of identifying mechanical problems is entirely intuitive, and the “The Empiricists,” who employ traditional, instrument-based verification of an elevator’s condition. In the novel, the elevator is used as a metaphor to express movement, racial progress, and the limitations and power of language.

For their Selections project, Hart, Jemison, and Valentine picked a paragraph from Whitehead’s text. The passage was chosen for its associations with the by turns halting and accelerating pace of each artist’s studio practice (in which they see a metaphor for human communication) and its inclusion of a quotation by Surrealist poet André Breton about a train that constantly roars out of the station, but that we know will never leave. Taking a cue from the book’s labyrinthine use of language, they divided the paragraph into short phrases. Every phrase was then assigned a unique group of keywords from the Viewing Program’s database, based on a sense of resonance or affinity between the two. “To believe” was, thus, linked by the artists to the keywords spiritual, conceptual, meditative, and fantasy; “in silence” was associated with the keywords language, meditative, dreams, and gestural, etc. In this way, each keyword became one element of a newly invented poetic language. (The analog archives that predate and were not converted into the online version of the Viewing Program’s registry were also included in the process; artist statements were searched for similarly self-describing language to pair with keywords.) Matching clusters of keywords to the phrases in the selected paragraph, Hart, Jemison, and Valentine identified nearly seventy participants in the Viewing Program’s registry for their exhibition (one for each phrase). The artists—who represent myriad styles, a range of career paths, different generations, and far-flung geographies—were each asked to contribute one artwork in response to their assigned phrase. Installed according to the sequence determined by Whitehead’s organizing text, the exhibition is accompanied by a series of closely connected lectures, readings, and panel discussions, which address information organization and visualization, graphic notation, poetry, and text-based art. The project’s beauty lies in the fluid, intuitive, and empirical system that Hart, Jemison, and Valentine have devised to realize The Intuitionists as they find new ways to think about collectivity and the unique interdependence of objects.

To believe


A collective is a group of people who work cooperatively toward a common goal. Our challenge is to develop a collective of objects— objects that remain individual agents with independent agendas. In information technology and database theory, “to aggregate” is to bring together individual streams that remain independent and theoretically divisible; the noun “aggregate” refers to a dense cluster of separate units that do not cohere, e.g., a flower is composed of an aggregate of florets, petals, or fruits. We imagine the constituent elements of a collection as dynamic objects on distinct trajectories, temporarily funneled into a single current. Objects are classified, clustered, situated, and affiliated in an immense web of ever-changing relations. They enlarge, accumulate, thicken with each new encounter. Every object is an archive. The exhibition proposes a synchronic analysis of general conditions. Relying on a non-hierarchical, keyword-based system to identify artists and organize artworks, TH∑ + IN + ��I� = (I�N) x IS�S imagines discrete artworks as autonomous actors and the exhibition as a generous interface. Viewers are offered a path shaped by a passage from Colson Whitehead’s speculative novel The Intuitionist that is both arbitrary and intentional. Arbitrary, because it is one among an infinite number of valid ordering systems. Intentional, because Whitehead’s playful investment in the politics and aesthetics of knowing, in the limits of observation, and in the ironies of progress, prefigures our own commitments. Relay: to receive and to pass; a switch. Our drawings trace the closed path of a relay logic elevator’s electric circuit. The diagram describes an obsolete technology that was not dead after all, but merely dormant. Can data truly be at rest? Is a picture active only when it is beheld? Why is the thought of perpetual motion so pleasing? “To play with series is to play with the fire of infinity.”1 1
