Exhibition Location: Museum

Drawing Redefined presents the distinctive work of Roni Horn, Esther Kläs, Joëlle Tuerlinckx, Richard Tuttle, and Jorinde Voigt, artists who have maintained a discipline of drawing as a constituent element of their artistic practice. For these artists, drawing is a forum for experimentation, a study, and an expansion of the vocabulary of images that recur in their art. In these artists' hands and through their bodies, the traditional practice of drawing is transformed into an exploration of time and space manifest in forms beyond conventional linear representation in photographic, painterly, and sculptural work.

Drawing Redefined is accompanied by an exhibition catalogue featuring essays by Connie Butler, Chief Curator, Hammer Museum; Cathleen Chaffee, Curator, Albright-Knox Art Gallery; Veronica Roberts, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Blanton Museum of Art, University of Texas; Lexi Lee Sullivan, Assistant Curator, deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum; and Jennifer Gross, Chief Curator, deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum.

Organized by Jennifer Gross, Chief Curator and Deputy Director of Curatorial Affairs.

Artists include Roni Horn, Esther Kläs, Joëlle Tuerlinckx, Richard Tuttle, and Jorinde Voigt.
