The Drawing Center has been a unique and dynamic part of New York City's cultural life since 1977. The only not-for-profit institution in the country to focus on the exhibition of drawings, it was established to demonstrate the significance and diversity of drawings throughout history, to juxtapose work by master figures with work by emerging and under-recognized artists, and to stimulate public dialogue on issues of art and culture.

Surrealism occupies a unique position in the intellectual and cultural history of the twentieth century. Marking the crisis in post-Enlightenment thought and active in every sphere of creative life, it has been at the heart of debates about modernism and postmodernism. The Centre provides a valuable focus for the many individual researchers in other universities and for museums with interests in surrealism, consolidating existing scholarship on surrealism and identifying vital new areas of research such as the relationship with science. Drawing together a broad range of disciplinary perspectives and allowing for productive interplay between historical analysis and contemporary artistic and theoretical reflection, the Centre is concerned to redefine understanding of a movement that is critical to debates about the avant-garde. It engages with surrealism's many legacies in recent art and cultural theory, and in collaboration with Tate will generate outputs of value to scholars, students, artists and the museum-going public.
