The individual practices of artists and perceived notions of what drawing can be, will be playfully questioned through a series of collaborative residencies. For two-weeks, a succession of ‘mini residencies’ of established collaborative pairings will unfold, creating new work in response to the gallery and college environments. With overlaps between collaborative groups and through the renegotiation of space, the potential for new interactions and the sparking of fresh conversations is fertile.
A MANY SIDED THING: A Residency of Collaborations is a project initiated by members of Drawing Connections, a group of artists who have chosen to work collaboratively through the medium of drawing as a way to challenge individual practices and investigate how artists communicate and collaborate. They hope to broaden expectations and understanding of what contemporary drawing can be and offer a platform for collaborative drawing in its expanded forms.
