Drawing stands in a pivotal place within contemporary art. An action, a process, sometimes a fully realised thing: it is re-invented by each generation because it continues to be indispensable to artists across many terrains. This symposium will engage with and investigate what that means to us as it examines the shape of drawing in Australia in 2019.
Mike Parr will present the keynote address, followed by a day of talk and discussion focussed on practicing artists and drawing. An afternoon screening will showcase selected animations from Sydney and around the world.
