Drawn to ‘drawing’

More than two dozen exhibitions and displays across Melbourne will next month

celebrate drawing as a way of thinking, designing and communicating.

The exhibitions are in association with the Drawing Out festival and conference of

drawing, being held at RMIT University from 7 to 9 April. The conference is a

creative collaboration between RMIT and the University of the Arts London and

explores drawing across the boundaries of disciplines. 

Events will be hosted by RMIT schools and galleries, and will feature a 24-hour

public program in RMIT open spaces. Highlights include:

Constellations: A Large Number of Small Drawings. Constellations brings

together a large number of small Australian drawings from disciplines such

as music, architecture, art, cartography, design, fashion and textiles, film,

photography and science.

Magnetic Islands. Featuring drawings and works on paper from staff of

Seoul National University (South Korea) and RMIT University School of Art.

Like No Place Known. Includes the work of contemporary Australian,

Chinese and Swedish artists working in the field of drawing.

Bodies for Motion. Reveals the ways drawing is used as a preproduction

tool in the design of animated characters and avatars and showcases work

that demonstrates the genesis of different kinds of characters for film,

television, game and multiplayer online worlds.

Mellifera. An on-line, interactive environment in Second Life which is linked

to a complementary series of real-time exhibitions in gallery and museum


Surface. A drawing performance involving a mark-making process that

leaves coloured traces on the surfaces of the gallery wall and the clad

bodies of performers. The process brings together drawing in action and

textile-based sculptural work.
