grâce au dessin is a group exhibition focusing on work incorporating drawing and drawing technique in non-traditional ways with respect to notational shorthand, invented personal and visual languages, as well as observational and/or conceptual information. These works lead to – or are part and parcel of – other forms of an artist’s studio practice like video, installation, sculpture, photography, painting, performance, public art and ‘drawing’ per se as the completed result or extension from a set of ideas. The exhibition casts a far reaching net to assemble fascinating relationships, expand shared conversations, and galvanize cultural exchange between contemporary art communities.
