This exhibition on contemporary large-format drawing brings together some thirty artists who work extensively in the medium. What does it mean for an artist to draw on a large scale – in situ, on paper, or indeed on other supports – and explore the limits of their creativity? How does a visitor feel when confronted with the drawing’s monumentality, far removed from the discreet intimacy of a sketch? The exhibition examines the status of drawing today and the potential that is unleashed when it assumes uncommon dimensions.
