David Goldes will release his new monograph with Radius Books, Unpredictable Drawings, with text by Pavel S. Pyś. Unpredictable Drawings continues Goldes’s signature material explorations, in which he introduces electrical and chemical elements to drawings, which in turn create new, unexpected features. By electrifying, corroding, and reacting the surfaces of these works, Goldes creates a body of work that reflects the instability of the times in which they are made. Find out more on Radius Books’s website.
Drawings by David Goldes were on view in Growing the Collection: Drawings and Collage, 1960 to Now, an exhibition of acquired works on paper, at the Minneapolis Institute of Art (MIA) in Minneapolis, MN, from December 22, 2018 – September 1, 2019. For more information, please visit the MIA website.

A limited edition of 25 copies featuring a signed, original silver gelatin print are also available from the publisher. For more information, please visit the Artbook website.
