A Parliament of Lines
aspects of contemporary drawing
curated by Euan Gray
30 March - 8 June2013
A Parliament of Lines, a touring exhibition curated by Euan Gray for the City Art Centre in Edinburgh, brings together the work of 14 artists, most working at an international level, who have all passed through the Scottish art school system.
Drawing has been an integral part of art education in Scotland since Edinburgh College of Art was founded over 250 years ago as the first school of drawing in Britain.
A Parliament of Lines explores how drawing is used in contemporary art practise, questions what drawing is and explores its boundary with painting, animation and photography.
