“How could drawing be of itself and not about something else?” Dorothea Rockburne’s 1973 exhibition at the Bykert Gallery in New York, a touchstone in modern drawing practice, aimed to addressing the artist’s query. Using the wall as her surface, Rockburne created a series of works using carbon paper, which she folded and manipulated to create a carefully mapped network of ruled lines that engaged the viewer visually and bodily, shaping their perception of the gallery space and challenging expectations of what a drawing can be. The exhibition Dorothea Rockburne: Drawing Which Makes Itself pays homage to the artist’s groundbreaking project of the same name, with a group of major carbon paper and wall works—including Nesting and Neighborhood, from MoMA's collection—exhibited together for the first time since 1973. Contextualizing the wall drawings is a selection of Rockburne’s works on paper and paintings from that decade, all selected from MoMA’s strong holdings of her work. The exhibition highlights the concerns that have occupied the artist since her early career, including the application of mathematical principles, and her continued engagement with, and challenge of, the methods and practice of drawing.
Organized by Esther Adler, Assistant Curator, Department of Drawings.

A Maze and Gaze: Alan Shields takes Color Field for a Walk
By David Carrier
Since opening in 1999, Greenberg Van Doren has maintained a leading position among New York galleries having presented 108 exhibitions and published 45 catalogs. We are proud of the work we have done, the artists we have shown and the relationships we have built with the collectors, critics, curators and scholars we have welcomed through our doors on Fifth Avenue. Having accomplished so much, the time has come to continue our work in the art world in new ways.
John Van Doren and Dorsey Waxter will open a new gallery, Van Doren Waxter, at 23 East 73rd Street on the Upper East Side in early 2013.
We are excited about what the future holds for all of us and we look forward to seeing you soon.
New York, NY, December 14, 2012 – The Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) today announced that Dorsey Waxter, Partner in Van Doren Waxter, has been appointed as ADAA’s new President, effective January 1, 2012. Ms. Waxter will succeed Lucy Mitchell-Innes, Co-Owner of Mitchell-Innes & Nash, who has served as ADAA’s President since 2009.
ADAA’s Executive Director Linda Blumberg commented, “Dorsey Waxter’s experience as a dealer and the respect she commands from her colleagues will make her the ideal President to lead ADAA as the Association embarks on its next 50 years.”
“I am honored to have been appointed President of this prestigious organization and to build upon the work of my predecessors, Lucy Mitchell-Innes and Roland Augustine, to emphasize the prominence of art dealers,” notes Ms. Waxter. “My prior experience will be useful in leading the ADAA as it continues its mission to promote the highest standards of connoisseurship, scholarship and ethical practice within the profession. In doing so, I hope to highlight the significant role of art galleries and dealers. From identifying artists at the beginning of their careers, to guiding their development, to being intimately involved in the work that artists do, dealers are responsible for connecting artists’ visions with the greater community. As President of ADAA, I look forward to serving the membership and to encouraging wider understanding and appreciation of the work and contributions of art galleries.”
Dorsey Waxter’s career began at Nancy Hoffman Gallery in 1974. After three years, she transitioned to André Emmerich Gallery, contributing to the gallery’s specialization in New York color field and post-World War II abstraction. She spent 15 years there and was named Director. In 1991 she established an art consultancy, Dorsey Waxter Fine Art, Inc. advising clients and representing prominent estates, concentrating on American and European Art from 1945-present. Ms. Waxter then became Director of Greenberg Van Doren Gallery in 1998—now Van Doren Waxter, where she is a Partner. Van Doren Waxter mounts major exhibitions of both historical and contemporary work, and the gallery’s roster of artists and estates includes some of the most influential artists of the 20th and 21st centuries.
Ms. Waxter has been a member of the ADAA’s Board of Directors since 2009, serving on the Executive Committee and chairing the Public Relations Committee. She will bring her keen insight on the art world and art galleries to her new role as President of the ADAA.

This first career retrospective will be accompanied by a 160-page catalogue with 52 full-color illustrations, published by the Museum and distributed by ARTBOOK | D.A.P. Essayists include the curator, Alicia Longwell, who will provide an overview of the artist's profound engagement with the history of art. Three additional contributors will investigate salient aspects of Rockburne's career: Stéphane Aquin, Curator of Contemporary Art, Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montréal, will write about Rockburne's early years in Montreal and the cultural and artistic climate that shaped her future development as an artist; art historian David Anfam will examine Rockburne's work within the context of art world movements and strategies of the 1960s, 70s and 80s; and Robert Lawlor, author of Scared Geometry: Philosophy & Practice, will probe the artist's lifelong engagement with ancient knowledge. The catalogue will also include a selected chronology of life and work with artist's statements.
