This itinerant exposition with the Ermanno Tedeschi Gallery will arrive in Rome, Milan, Turin, Tel Aviv and New York.

“Never Say the Eye Is Rigid: Architectural Drawings of Daniel Libeskind.” The exhibition, in collaboration with the Ermanno Tedeschi Gallery (Milan, Turin, Rome ,Tel Aviv), brings together a series of original drawings from a selection of Libeskind projects, will include depictions of the architect’s signature work, the Jewish Museum Berlin (2001), and his 2003 master plan for Ground Zero in New York City.

The sketches reflect a wide range of styles and techniques and range from almost-classical line drawings to highly expressive watercolors and free-flowing ink sketches. All of the works reflect a connection between the philosophical ideas underlying the project depicted and that project’s unique aesthetics – its particular color, mood, posture and tension. From the extremely large scroll depicting the Ground Zero master plan to the intimate sketches of the Jewish Museum Berlin, the drawings offer a rare and intriguing glimpse into Mr. Libeskind’s approach to some of his most famous projects.

The exhibition has been hosted at the Ermanno Tedeschi Gallery in Rome, Turin, Tel Aviv and plans to travel to Milan and New York.
