The Nothing That is: a drawing show in five parts
June 5 - September 7, 2015
CAM Raleigh is pleased to present The Nothing That Is: a drawing show in five parts curated by Bill Thelen. This extraordinary exhibition includes more then 85 local, national and international artists all exploring contemporary approaches to drawing, mark making and gesture. The Nothing That Is will be presented in five parts throughout the museum and also includes drawing projects in the community.
The So & So Series began in Boston in 2006 and moved to Raleigh in 2008. Featuring both local and national poets, So & So has hosted more than 300 readers, including Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winners. In order to connect more fully with Raleigh's arts community, So & So has partnered with CAM Raleigh once more for the 2015 season. Poets will be responding to pieces of their choosing in whatever exhibit is being shown at the time of their reading. The hope is that this will start a dialogue between the poets and the artists and may even lead to interesting and exciting collaborations.
This months' readers will be Simeon Berry, Joanna Penn Cooper, and Cecily Iddings.
