17 September—12 October 2018
Presenting new work by six pairs of artists, created through long-distance collaboration between two cities, The Drawing Exchange 2018 explored drawing as a form of dialogue. With exhibitions running concurrently at the National Art School, Sydney and the Adelaide Central School of Art, The Drawing Exchange 2018 served as a point of discussion about diverse ideas of drawing in contemporary art, and demonstrated drawing’s manifestation in a range of media and art forms, from pencil and paper to installation, sculpture and digital media.
Participating artists: Louise Haselton & Damian Dillon, Bernadette Klavins & Toni Warburton, Michael Kutschbach & Marian Tubbs, Mary-Jean Richardson & Chelsea Lehmann, Hossein Valamanesh & Gary Deirmendjian, and Laura Wills & Kirtika Kain
Along side the main exchange which is presented in the Rayner Hoff Project Space, National Art School students and staff worked on an exchange project with Adelaide Central School of Art students. Each Adelaide student has sent a set of instructions to someone in Sydney and vice versa.
Participating NAS students and staff: Tango Conway, Tamsin Salehian, Maryanne Coutts, Justin Bishop, Omar Raf Diallo, Jess Amos, Margaret Jewell and Jayanto Tan.
