The 43 Uses of Drawing

Craig Staff, Paul Cureton

Research output: Non-Textual OutputExhibition


The 43 Uses of Drawing explored the practice of drawing beyond the paper surface, via the work of 43 practitioners working in a number of different areas. The aim of the exhibition was to ignite debate and discussion by mapping the different practices and uses of drawing across disciplines and beyond the boundaries of fine art. The exhibition showcased drawing through the work of both artists and non-artists who use drawing in their professions. It included drawings from graffiti artists, children’s illustrators, political cartoonists, architects, animators, landscape architects, set designers, tattoo artists, digital renderers and performance artists, along with fine artists.
