artQ13 is proud to present ANONYMOUS DRAWINGS, first italian exhibition stop of the project founded in 2006 by the Berliner artist Anke Becker in which have taken part more than 5000 artists from all over the world.
How does one’s own assessment change if there is no information at all about the artist? How can one develop a personal definition of value if the sales prices are all identical? What is then a good drawing? ANONYMOUS DRAWINGS is conceptual art and exhibition project all in one: Each and every anonymous artist becomes part of a collective work of art where hierarchies do not exist.
In the context of ANONYMOUS DRAWINGS roughly 700 drawings by 700 international artists will be presented in changing exhibition spaces. The works will be displayed anonymously. Each exhibition is preceded by an international call for submissions, that is open to everyone. Age, biography or gender will not be requested to be disclosed and do not play any role in the selection. The selection for the exhibition will be made anonymously, too.
