The show will be devoted entirely to Frank Gehry’s drawings which span 25 years from 1979 to 2004. Forty-nine original pen-on-paper drawings of eight museum projects will be featured, as will a selection of Gehry’s sketchbooks from the late 1970s and early 1980s, along with an array of telephone-pad/thumbnail sketches never before shown. A unique, 3-D “wire drawing” commissioned by Gehry for the University of Toronto Art Centre show will also be displayed.
