The End of the Line: Attitudes in Drawing
Exhibition 14 November 2009 – 10 January 2010
A Hayward Touring Exhibition

This exhibition of new and recent work by eleven highly acclaimed young international artists explored a diverse range of contemporary approaches to drawing. From small, intricately-crafted pencil drawings to expanded installations in which the ‘drawn’ lines are made from tape, or in which drawings mutate into animation, the exhibition celebrated a contemporary resurgence in drawing.

This exhibition brought together artists from several continents, all using drawing to communicate their ideas, dreams and interpretations of the world. Artists in the exhibition were: Jan Albers (Germany), Michaël Borremans (Belgium), Marc Brandenburg (Germany), Fernando Bryce (Peru/Germany), Kate Davis (New Zealand/Scotland), Monika Grzymala (Poland), David Haines (England/ Netherlands), Kim Hiorthøy (Norway), Garrett Phelan (Ireland), Naoyuki Tsuji (Japan), Sandra Vasquez de la Horra (Chile).
