Abstract (English)

This exhibition of contemporary drawing features the work of 39 artists committed to the practice. Considering drawing as a convenient way to record and comment on contemporary life, Augaitis focuses on the representational work that is part of a trend that has seen drawing take prominence in the art world. The curatorial essay speculates on the reasons for this popularity and features statements from several artists in the exhibition. Biographical notes. List of works. 2 bibl. ref.
