Neke Carson, Lottery drawing, artist signature

Detail of artist signature

For his series of “Lottery Drawing” performances Carson created numbered drawings and hid them in galleries.   People found his numbered drawings crumbled in corners and participated in a “Lottery Drawing Event” at the gallery.   At the first lottery drawing at the Sonnabend Gallery one woman won $50. At another “Drawing” someone won $200.  At the last Lottery held at the Robert Friedus Gallery the grand prize was $1000 in one dollar bills which finalists competed for in a contest of classical musical chairs with a string quartet from the Juilliard School providing the music.
