Lecturer: Luke Thurgate
Venue: Building 25 @ NAS
This workshop explores drawing as a framework for collaboration. Students will work together in different size groups, employing various experimental strategies for producing collaborative drawings. Students will work at multiple scales using a range of drawing materials. These process driven exercises introduce ideas around authorship, agency and empathy.
The workshop will then culminate in students developing a co-directed system for drawing collaboratively. Students will be encouraged to focus on risk taking, shared experience, and the conceptual and technical possibilities of drawing collaboratively.
The workshop will also include a discussion of historical and contemporary examples of collaboration.
Luke Thurgate is an artist and educator based in Adelaide. He currently lectures in the Drawing Department at Adelaide Central School of Art where he also works as the Public Programs Manager. His work explores notions of collaboration, value, participation, masculinity, romance and death.
