Pictured here is the page “Miracles” from our out-of-print catalog The Royal Art Lodge: Ask the Dusk that corresponded to our 2003 exhibition. This publication is currently featured in our Scriptorium, on view every weekend through August 24th.

The Scriptorium offers an intimate space for the perusal of various out-of-print Drawing Center publications. Created in the spirit of the medieval scriptorium—the room in monasteries devoted to the transcription of manuscripts—this new initiative invites viewers to research, react, and draw inspiration from the institution’s rich publication history. Visitors are also encouraged to create their own “transcriptions” of Drawing Center texts, which will be scanned for archival purposes and displayed in the Scriptorium itself.
