Join collector and curator, Jack Shear, for a tour of this significant exhibition of drawings from his collection, installed in its third and final iteration curated by Jarrett Earnest.

"Ways of Seeing: Three Takes on the Jack Shear Drawing Collection is a three-part exhibition that focuses on the extraordinary drawing collection of artist, curator, and President of the Ellsworth Kelly Foundation Jack Shear. Continuing The Drawing Center's tradition of exhibiting drawings from outstanding public and private collections, Ways of Seeing offers a revealing experiment in connoisseurship and exhibition-making. During the course of the exhibition's fifteen-week run, artist Arlene Shechet, critic and curator Jarrett Earnest, and Shear himself will each present an installation curated from Shear's holdings, which consist of nearly seven hundred drawings dating from the sixteenth century to the present."
