Drawing (v.) Drawings (n.) | Emily Mohr

Banvard Gallery
April 10, 2019 - 9:00am to July 19, 2019 - 5:00pm

The Banvard Gallery will host the LeFevre Exhibition Drawing (v.) Drawings (n.) beginning Wednesday, April 10, 2019. The exhibit will open with a reception following the lecture by Emily Mohr at 5:30 p.m. on the Big Stairs.


Drawing (v.) Drawings (n.) is the performance of a series of nine ‘as-built drawings’ exhibited as they are drawn in the Banvard Gallery. Neither digitally fabricated nor hand-crafted, the exhibition employs a series of custom-built CNC drawing robots to draw nine drawings framed perspectivally and literally by nine frames. Composed of recompositions of site-specific ornament, the framed drawings are suspended from three structural members mismatched from the gallery’s three existing structural channels to produce a series of collaged views of the collaged frames.


2018-19 LeFevre Emerging Practitioner Fellow Emily Mohr and graduate research assistant Brandon Doherty. Special thanks to Sarah Mohr and Jonathan Rieke. Installation team: Autumn Harvey, Qinyue Liu, Annie Richardson, Michael Rizk, Justin Slayton, Kevin Stewart, Maryan Warsame and Brett Wedding.


The Banvard Gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The Gallery is located on the first floor of Knowlton Hall on the campus of The Ohio State University.
