Drawing Redefined offers an original, critical look at the distinctive role drawing plays in the processes of five influential contemporary artists.  For Roni Horn, Esther Kläs, Joëlle Tuerlinckx, Richard Tuttle, and Jorinde Voigt drawing is an essential medium in their multimedia and object-based work. Drawing affirms these artists’ tactile engagement with the world and serves as a means for aesthetic experimentation and inquiry. In these artists’ hands and through their bodies, the traditional practice of drawing is transformed into an exploration of time and space not necessarily bound to the page or the wall, manifest in film, sculpture, and painting. Following an introduction that traces the art historical precedents of drawing’s key role in 20th-century artistic practice, noted scholars of contemporary art provide essays that explore the individual work of each artist and the vital place drawing maintains within it. Their diverse and compelling works of art are featured in 60 color illustrations.

Jennifer R. Gross is chief curator and deputy director for curatorial affairs at deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, MA.
