I Walk the Line: New Australian Drawing

Drawing is enjoying a renaissance in contemporary Australian art. This exhibition examines new approaches to drawing and the reinvigoration of drawing practice by many (mostly young) artists from across the nation who have spear-headed its resurgent popularity.  

The exhibition adopts the traditional definition of drawing as 'mark-making', but its focus extends to performative works that feature the production of marks as well as art objects. As a result it includes both drawings and works about drawing.  

The range of works comprises collaborative and performative drawings, animation, as well as works that feature the cross-over between drawing and the graphic arts.
