Drawing Conversations 3: Drawing Talking to Sciences
This project brought together artists and scientists to assess the potential of drawing to make meaningful contributions to knowledge outside the arts.
This one-day conference invited artists and scientists to explore the contribution of drawing to this rapidly expanding area of interdisciplinary research, in the context of the exhibition Ruskin: Museum of the Near Future, which explored Ruskin’s advocacy of a daily practice of drawing as a way of understanding the world.
The accompanying exhibition, Drawn to Investigate, explored how drawing continues to work across boundaries: between observation and expression, empiricism and invention in a range of investigative practices.
