Drawn at the RWA
Congratulations to all of our members who have been selected for Drawn. Including Petra Regent, Ros Ford, Chitra Merchant and Sarah Duncan who won the Work on Paper award.
Drawn is a biennial open submission drawing exhibition, which aims to explore the boundaries of drawing and celebrate it as both an autonomous discipline and an interdisciplinary tool.
Drawing has taken on different definitions across the centuries, crossing spatial and theoretical boundaries and creating intersections between disciplines as diverse as typography and photography. As a means of communication and navigation, drawing has taken on a universality and accessibility unlike any other medium. It is a building block of creativity, key to the visualisation and translation of ideas and practices, fundamental in making, doing, testing, designing, thinking, playing and living.
It allows us to analyse, record, map, mark and form, making the abstract legible, and the legible oblique. Its history is inscribed with legibility/conversation as it skirts around the boundaries of text and image. It can be either a representation, or an expression, creating shadows and memories, marks and imprints, traces in space.
It is on until the 4th June and well worth a visit.
