The Drawing Project, a roundtable discussion on art, Frost Art Museum 9 May 2013
Please join us for The Drawing Project’s (www.drawingproject.frostartmuseum.org) final launch program: Boundless Reach, a roundtable discussion on art, documentation, the on-line experience, and the validity of on-line exhibition.
The roundtable will be a casual conversation hosted by Emmy Mathis, project creator, and Sarah Michelle Rupert, project collaborator, that touches on the practical, personal, and philosophical aspects of the on-line art experience.
The Drawing Project at the Frost Art Museum is a collaborative investigation curated by artist/educator and FIU graduate Emmy Mathis. The on-line exhibition/project space consists of an on-line exhibition where pieces from the Frost’s permanent collection, many of which have never been exhibited in the museum, are displayed along with international work culled by the Drawing Research Network, work by local Miami artists, and a special curatorial section of work from contemporary women artists from the Girls’ Club Collection. Artists include internationally renowned artists such as Jean Cocteau, Shirin Neshat and Robert Rauschenberg, as well as practitioners in the academic field of drawing such as Andrea Kantrowitz and John Adams, and local artists including Jenny Brillhart and Kevin Arrow. The website also hosts a project space that is open for proposals and an on-line residency whose first artist will be Jenny Brillhart for the months of April & May.
Extending beyond the screen, The Drawing Project continues into the tangible world in the form of public programs including a series of webisodes, talks, panel discussions and events, inviting the public to experience the project in a multitude of forms and make their own decisions regarding what defines line and what spaces it can it occupy.
