Draw It with Your Eyes Closed: the Art of the Art Assignment is a unique and wide-ranging anthology featuring essays, drawings, and assignments from over one hundred contributors including John Baldessari, William Pope.L, Mira Schor, Rochelle Feinstein, Bob Nickas, Chris Kraus, Liam Gillick, Amy Sillman, James Benning, and Michelle Grabner.

Throughout, the curators have also put their analytical gaze on hold in favor of responses in an associative and fictional voice that engages with aspects of the artists’ material. The Wilson Exercises surfaced as a semipublic program at the Rogaland Kunstsenter in Stavanger, ...
