Display of drawings and related material selected from the Tate, held at Tate Britain with symposium
Closely following the models developed in ‘The Stage of Drawing: Gesture and Act’, the symposium was inaugurated by keynote speaker, Alain Badiou, and divided into three sessions, each with a different chair: Catherine de Zegher, Jean Fisher, and Michael Newman (all contributors to ‘The Stage of Drawing’ publication). Each Chair led their session from their areas of personal research, elaborating on the overarching theme devised by Newman. The aim of this structure was to first situate the subject of drawing within contemporary practice, then to move to a discussion of a social application of drawing, and finally to elaborate theoretical models through various bodies of knowledge. The sessions focussed on why drawing has in recent years become all pervasively present; considered if the cultural worldview conditions the nature of subjectivity and whether cultural memory and tradition have a role in developing new practices; and considered the fundamental constituent of drawing, the mark, and its fate in the digital age.
A complementary drawing show ‘Verisimilitude’ was also organised the gallery at Wimbledon College of Art.
