Exhibition and conference ‘Drawn to Investigate’, Ruskin Museum of the Near Future, Lancaster

Conference exhibition : Drawn to Investigate

An exhibition of drawings related to the conference theme ‘Drawing talking to the Sciences’ will be exhibited as part of the conference at The Ruskin Museum of the Near Future at Lancaster University and artists will have the opportunity to discuss their work during the proceedings. The exhibition will look at the potential of drawing used as an investigative tool to make meaningful contributions to knowledge outside the arts. The exhibition complements the conference papers with visual examples of how drawing today continues to work across the porous boundary between observation and expression, empiricism and invention in a range of investigative practices. Using the term ‘science’ in the most inclusive way, the exhibition aims to bring together a range of examples of contemporary drawing undertaking research in dialogue with scientific investigation.

Exhibition dates are 10th -17th January
