Deletion | Blurriness | Incompleteness at the Prix Canson Show (The Drawing Center)

This year’s winner of the Prix Canson (the Jury of which was presided by the late Brazilian artist Tunga) was Njideka Akunyili Crosby. However, my favorite pieces from the Canson show at the Drawing Center were those of finalists ruby onyinyechi amanze, Bethany Collins, and Lucy Skaer. Most of their works share themes of erasure and incompleteness; I found that very taking and it resonated with some recent fixations on my end.

This is also a good opportunity to suggest bookmarking and playing around with The Deletionist [©2013 Amaranth Borsuk, Jesper Juul and Nick Montfort] in your browser 🙂
