About

This collaborative project will bring together student-artists from various institutions of DRAWING OPEN International Research Community to explore the expansive nature of drawing practice. Participants will respond to each other’s work and idea’s within a relay structure, passing drawings from one country to the next. Each institution will document the works received and advance the work over two-month period. An exhibition will take place at each phase and location of the project after drawings are transformed.

Project parameters:

  • There are no limitations on materials, processes or the forms the works take. Participants are encouraged to think broadly about what drawing is and/or could be.

  • The specified format for shipping is A4. Drawings may begin and evolve to any scale or format beyond A4 as long as they can be folded to A4 scale for transport.
