Curated by Paul Cureton and Craig Staff.
Tue 6 Sep 2011 - Sun 30 Oct 2011
Rugby Art Gallery, UK
A revived interest in drawing has brought the discipline to the forefront of contemporary arts. The 43 Uses of Drawing explores the practice of drawing beyond the paper surface, via the work of 43 practitioners working in a number of different areas. The aim of the exhibition is to ignite debate and discussion by mapping the different practices and uses of drawing across disciplines and beyond the boundaries of fine art.
The exhibition showcases drawing through the work of both artists and non-artists who use drawing in their professions. It will include drawings from graffiti artists, children’s illustrators, political cartoonists, architects, animators, landscape architects, set designers, tattoo artists, digital renderers and performance artists, along with fine artists and many others.
The 43 Uses of Drawing demonstrates both the breadth of drawing today and its continued relevance to contemporary artistic practice and the wider creative industry.
