Telling Stories: Resilience and Struggle in Contemporary Narrative Drawing
Telling Stories: Resilience and Struggle in Contemporary Narrative Drawing Beginning November 21 | New Media Gallery

The exhibition Telling Stories: Resilience and Struggle in Contemporary Narrative Drawing showcases the extraordinary vitality of contemporary drawing as an expressive medium as presented through the works of Amy Cutler, Robyn O’Neil, and Annie Pootoogook. Utilizing inventive mark-making systems and a singular approach to rendering space, these three, internationally recognized artists produce imaginative, open-ended narratives that chronicle the complexities of human relationships and their struggles within the natural environment. Though their stylistic approaches differ, the theme of human resilience intertwined with pressing societal and ecological concerns is a central focus for each artist.
