From the 24th of April, 2015 the Raphael hall of the Russian Art Academy museum will host an opening of the exhibition “Linie, Line, Линия: contemporary drawing”. The exhibition will display works by twenty graphic artists who live and work in Germany. Thus the exhibition can be considered an attempt to represent current movements in art of drawing in Germany. Since ancient times drawing has been closely connected with cultural, historical and religious symbols of each epoch. Today drawing plays a keen role in contemporary art.
The exhibition gives opportunity to think about the very essence of the art of drawing; it shows how drawing goes beyond those boundaries which were meant for it in the art history and how it explores new ideas and techniques. Each artist whose works are displayed deals specifically with the art of drawing; for each of them a drawing is not a sketch or preparatory design but a deliberately chosen way of artistic expression.
The exhibition will run until the 24th of May, 2015
