28 June - 8 September 2018
On a proposal from Christine Phal, founder of the Drawing Lab and DRAWING NOW Art Fair, the members of the artistic committee invited emerging artists from the young European scene to present drawing and animation videos.
Daria de Beauvais, Sandra Hegedüs, Elsy Lahner, Philippe Piguet, as well as Christine Phal, each selected one or more artists. Seven artists with different universes were chosen to give an overview of the young contemporary creation.
This program of videos reveals the diversity and richness of contemporary drawing that never ceases to surprise. The drawing takes possession of the place by animating itself in different forms.
Thanks to this event, the Drawing Lab continues its main mission: to bring drawing out of the sheet to present prospective works.
