The medium of drawing has never been so topical. Young artists in particular are once again dedicating themselves exclusively to drawing and consciously setting new accents.
The spectrum ranges from the precise, small-format pencil study to diagrams, reportages, and scores, to large, temporary room installations. These new trends in drawing are the focus of the volume, Drawing Rooms.
This exhibition catalogue on the occasion of the reopening of the Hamburger Kunsthalle provides an in-depth overview of over 50 years of drawing, and hence insight into a medium is today among the “most open and direct genres of the present.”
Published on the occasion of the exhibition Drawing Rooms: Contemporary graphic arts at Hamburger Kunsthalle, Galerie der Gegenwart. Part I: 30 April – 30 October 2016. Part II: 25 November 2016 – 21 May 2017.
