Published by Paper Monument, co-edited by Prem Krishnamurthy, and designed by Project Projects, Draw it with your eyes closed considers art education as an object of inquiry by examining its most basic form of pedagogy: the art assignment. At once questioning, criticizing, and informing the role and purpose of the assignment, the book collects a range of essays, drawings, and creative briefs from over 100 artists, writers, and educators, including: Julie Ault, John Baldessari, Martin Beck, James Benning, Liam Gillick, Christine Hill, Bob Nickas, Amie Siegel, Amy Sillman, and many more.

“This is the book to read on the subway while on your way to the Whitney Biennial. It allows you to consider the long and improbable leap from novitiate art to the real and electric thing.”
–– New York Times
