Travelling Lines brings together scholars, artists, curators and collectors to create an international forum to consider three key themes: itinerant modes of drawing by Latin America based artists that prioritise investigation and exploration; how the nomadic practices of artists necessitate conceptual and low-key strategies associated with drawing, an especially portable medium; and how itinerant and other modes of drawing circulate within the transnational circuits of the globalised art world. Focusing on one medium, speakers address how visual languages participate in, depend on, and travel across local as well as global territories. 22 September, 5 — 8pm, Drawing Room: Tanya Barson: a curator's tour of the exhibition Christian Rattemeyer: curating, collecting and displaying drawing Debate: Christian Rattemeyer, Kate Brindley, Candida Gertler and Catherine Petitgas discuss the curating and collecting of drawing, examining the contexts of the museum, the independent gallery, university collections, the international biennale, and the private collection. 23 September, 9am — 5.45pm, Chelsea College of Art and Design: Key-note lecture by Moacir dos Anjos Ellen Gallagher in conversation with Tanya Barson.
