Drawing in the Present Tense

A richly illustrated, up-to-the-minute overview of new approaches in drawing, in the context of recent developments of other forms of contemporary art.

Drawing in the Present Tense explores the variety of ways in which contemporary artists from around the world have come to approach drawing as the primary element of their practice. One which is autonomous: an end in itself, rather than a means to an end in another, more substantial medium. In an era of advanced technologies where image production has accelerated—potentially beyond the capacity of human attention—what values can be attributed to the slow, deliberate process of drawing by hand?
