Art zine with open calls featured artists, writers gallery, and exhibitions now in our 12th issue drawing in the expanded field - In recent years the category 'drawing' has expanded to incorporate a wide range of materials and processes, making it increasingly difficult to define. In contemporary art, the term 'drawing' might refer to a physical struggle (Matthew Barney), a fragment of a cinematic sequence (Tacita Dean), an object made linear (Cornelia Parker) or a geopolitical borderline (Doris Salcedo).
The Expanded Field that we refer to was mapped by American Art Historian Rosalind Krauss in her essay Sculpture in the Expanded Field published in the journal October 1979(4) as a framework to define a shift in sculpture at the time—a sort of un-monumental, non-architectural practice.
While Krauss's 1979 essay identified sculpture's placement within an 'expanded field' as a condition of postmodernism, the study of drawing might suggest alternative models for thinking about historical continuity and rupture within cultural practices. We want to see how you, engage with drawing in all its forms and translations
