    Sumi Ink Club

    Sumi Ink Club is a participatory drawing project established in 2005 by Los Angeles-based artists Sarah Rara and Luke Fischbeck. The club produces work cooperatively in open-to-the-public meetings, which can be organized by anyone at any time, using minimal materials. In each of its permutations, Sumi Ink Club uses group drawing as a means to open and fortify social interactions that bleed into everyday life, beginning with a core set of guidelines for collaboration to create complex composite images that represent our histories, narratives, fantasies and imaginaries. Images made by Sumi Ink Club belong to the public domain, and have been widely re-worked, displayed and distributed as murals, prints, textiles, garments, and zines. Sumi Ink Club is non-hierarchical: all ages, all humans, all styles.
