Founded by Christine Phal on a non-profit organization model that brings together an association of friends and Endowment Fund for Contemporary Drawing (Fonds de Dotation pour le Dessin Contemporain), the Drawing Lab is a private art centre entirely dedicated to the promotion and diffusion of contemporary drawing. It is above all a place of experimentation and production of drawing in all its forms, by providing contemporary artists the possibility to explore drawing’s full spectrum. Artists are invited to occupy the 150m2 space, to try on new techniques, to create innovative works of art, and to propose a new point of view on contemporary drawing. With four exhibitions a year, the center hosts french and international artists within its walls.
Christine Phal’s personal dedication, with the support of the Drawing Society, allows to
- organize diverse events for all audiences
- produce four exhibitions a year
- publish catalogues
- provide free entry to everyone
The venue’s mission is to disseminate contemporary drawing to many audiences.
