Performance and Panel Discussion: Drawn Out, Drawn Over

Gateway Arts Center

Drawn Out: A conversation about expanding the edges of observation

Please join us at the Brentwood Arts Exchange for a performance by Michael Pestel of his “Birdrawing Machine.” The performance will be followed by a panel discussion that aims to raise the critical questions surrounding the nature and sustainability of drawing in academic institutions and will examine both traditional and non-traditional approaches to mark-making as it applies to contemporary concepts and visual ideas.

Drawn Out, Drawn Over aims to field a visual conversation about drawing approaches by featuring 18 selected artists living throughout the United States, most of who have had devoted careers as academics. Their institutions range from small liberal arts colleges, community colleges, and some of the largest research institutions in the country.

Moderated by Curator, Nikki Brugnoli
