DESCRIPTION


Drawing is an immediate, primary, and intimate medium. Video, on the other hand,is devoid of materiality and texture – a mechanical reproduction intended for a mass audience. In this exhibition, the two contrasting forms of expression are brought together in works that challenge drawing to maintain its unique characteristics, while endowing video with the added value of the artist’s touch. The works entail close observation of the process of drawing and the traces it leaves behind. They demonstrate the wide variety of its materials and stretch its conventional limits, thus enriching artistic creation in a fresh, and often surprising, way. Participating artists: Joshua Neustein, William Kentridge, Oscar Muñoz, Katerina Šedá, David Behar Perahia, Talia Keinan, Zilla Leutenegger, James Paterson, Amit Pitaru, and Maya Shan Bowden
