Dan Fischer: Drawings, 1999-2021

May 1 - August 13, 2021

The FLAG Art Foundation presents a two-decade survey of Dan Fischer’s graphite-on-paper drawings, on view May 1-August 13, 2021, on its 10th floor. Consisting of more than fifty works that span 1999 to 2021, the exhibition is organized to highlight Fischer’s iterative and meticulous reworking of canonical artists and artworks as a means of exploring the nature of the photographic medium, image appropriation, and mechanical reproduction.
