After the Beginning and Before the End is not your typical drawing show. The MIT List Visual Arts Center is serving up the creative process in its purist form. This exhibition features some 220 instruction drawings, surveying over forty years of artists’ improvisations, personal musings, early conceptualizations, and directions for completion. It’s a little like looking over the shoulder of John Cage, Robert Smithson, Carolee Schneemann, or Chris Burden as they work out their ideas. Through January 5, 2003.
