Experimental Collaborative Drawing

BOOK HERE

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.
