Panel 3 at the Travelling Lines, TrAIN conference.

Drawing is enjoying a renaissance – in art education, art practice, curating and research. Drawing is on the move: while still subsidiary, it has become established as an autonomous art with a primary status. Travelling Lines brings together scholars, artists, curators and collectors to create an international forum to consider three key themes: itinerant modes of drawing by Latin America based artists that prioritise investigation and exploration, as line travels off the page and out of the studio into the environment; how the nomadic practices of artists necessitate conceptual and low-key strategies associated with drawing, an especially portable medium; and how itinerant and other modes of drawing circulate within the transnational circuits of the globalised art world. Focusing on one medium, speakers address how visual languages participate in, depend on, and travel across local as well as global territories.

The conference coincides with the exhibition The Peripatetic School: Itinerant drawing from Latin America, curated by Tanya Barson, Curator, International Art, Tate Modern.
