Exploring Abstraction with Clare Kambhu

CMA Artist in Residence Clare Kambhu treated fifth graders from Children’s Workshop School to a behind-the-scenes tour of Maysha Mohamedi’s Gamebreaker exhibition at Pace Gallery



Students investigated the rules and guidelines of Mohamedi’s practice as they created their own abstract drawings.



One student commented on the tension between intention and interpretation, remarking "If I'm purposely drawing something and people make their own observation out of it, I'm fine with it. Because it could be the same. Like, if you were drawing, and you didn't have a meaning to what you were drawing and they saw a dog, it would be fine."
