I Walk the Line

New Australian Drawing

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.

Art Exhibition previously on at Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) in Sydney precinct, New South Wales, Australia.
From Tuesday 17 March 2009 to Sunday 24 May 2009

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