Curator’s Talk: On Into Irish Drawing

Jan 15 2009 11:55PM

Arno Kramer - Curator of Into Drawing

Arno Kramer, the curator of Into Irish Drawing will discuss the context of the exhibition, the choice of artists and the relevance of contemporary drawing in Ireland .  

‘With the materials they used, the artists in Into Irish Drawing have experienced hundreds of encounters on paper. Light touches, perhaps occasionally violent clashes, or sensitive strokes, but always animated and emotionally charged. The work reflects the substantial development in drawing going on at present, to a much greater degree than in any other art discipline.’        Arno Kramer
