Artists push the boundaries of traditional drawing in deCordova’s Drawing Redefined exhibition


Lincoln, MA, September 24, 2015–DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum is pleased to present Drawing Redefined: Roni Horn, Esther Kläs, Joëlle Tuerlinckx, Richard Tuttle, and Jorinde Voigt. The exhibition features work by five artists who have transformed the practice of drawing beyond conventional descriptive representation. Drawing enables these artists to experiment and expand their art making. In their hands and through their bodies, drawing is transformed into an exploration of time and space, and expresses their physical engagement with the world. Drawing Redefined opens to the public on Saturday, October 3, and will be on view in the galleries through March 20, 2016.
