For Does It Fold? in The Lab, multi-disciplinary artist David Scher will appear alongside special guests for three evenings of performances.


Nightly poetry readings, film screenings, and musical performances will take place in dialogue with a pop-up exhibition of Scher’s sketchbooks and musical scores. Discussions will focus on the dreamlike landscapes, figures, and follies that fill the more than 1200 sketchbooks Scher has created over nearly six decades of drawing. While giving life to the symbols and storylines that crisscross Scher’s sketches, Does It Fold? will celebrate the impulse to draw and Scher’s own stream-of-consciousness practice that beclouds boundaries between the real world and the imaginary.

To accompany Does It Fold?, David Scher has published a collection of artist sketchbook entries, poetry manuscripts, and found sketchbooks and scrapbooks. The book, edited by Scher, will be available through The Drawing Center’s bookstore. More information about the publication is available at doesitfold.com
