Drawing Futures is an international peer-reviewed conference on speculative drawing for art and architecture. Drawing Futures 2016 will be held on the 10 – 11 November 2016 at The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL.
The two-day conference will bring together some of the world’s leading practitioners in drawing for conversations about the contemporary cutting-edge and future directions of drawing as a critical tool for art and architecture.
Reviewed by an international panel of experts, projects presented at Drawing Futures will be selected through an open call for works . Drawn experiments, representational speculations and written provocations on the art of drawing in our digitally mediated world will address the themes:
Augmentations – Extending drawing through new technologies and materials.
Deviated Histories – Redefining or breaking from the history of drawing.
Future Fantasticals – Drawing as a tool for speculative thought.
Protocols – Encoding new information and data through drawings.
Deadline 16th May 2016
Drawing Futures will feature an exhibition at The Bartlett School of Architecture’s new 22 Gordon Street building showcasing selected submissions. A Drawing Futures book will also be published, featuring work of selected contributors from the public call for works, as a critical compendium of contemporary drawing practice in art and architecture.
