Please join Head of Drawing Dr Maryanne Coutts in conversation with current MFA student Kirtika Kain who will be speaking about the forthcoming project, The Drawing Exchange 2018.
Following on the success of last year’s Wall Drawing exchange, this year presents new work by six pairs of artists, created through long-distance collaboration between two cities, The Drawing Exchange 2018 explores drawing as a form of dialogue. With exhibitions running concurrently at the National Art School, Sydney and the Adelaide Central School of Art, The Drawing Exchange 2018 will serve as a point of discussion about diverse ideas of drawing in contemporary art, and demonstrate drawing’s manifestation in a range of media and art forms, from pencil and paper to installation, sculpture and digital media.
The Drawing Exchange 2018 is a two part exhibition staged in partnership between the nation’s top art schools. Six collaborative duos will produce new works in Adelaide Central School of Art and the National Art School in Sydney. This exhibition seeks to foreground the communicative potentials of drawing and the medium’s capacity for exciting collaboration.
They will also talk about the concurrent student program that is based in exchanges between MFA Drawing students from NAS and Students from Adelaide Central School of Art.
