Does It Fold? accompanies a series of events held at The Drawing Center, NYC, in September, 2017. These were nightly poetry readings, film screenings, and musical performances in dialogue with a pop-up exhibition of David Scher’s sketchbooks and musical scores. Scher has created more than 1200 sketchbooks filled with landscapes, figures, and follies over nearly six decades of drawing. The companion book assembles a collection of artist sketchbooks entries, poetry manuscripts, and found sketchbooks and scrapbooks.
