Draw(n) Out examines the work of artists who utilize drawing to explore physical manifestations and psychological perceptions of time. Notions of time—temporality, permanence, progression, flux—only add to the complexity of its definition, providing a rich framework from which artists can investigate new meaning.
The exhibition will focus on pushing the boundaries of the institutional definition of drawing, whether through the integration of mark-making with sometimes unusual materials or through a different conceptual approach to the medium, while simultaneously exploring themes of process, evolution, decay, and change.
