Drawing Room and Modern Art Oxford jointly present A Slice through the World: Contemporary Artists’ Drawings, a group exhibition that celebrates the sustained power of drawing in the digital age.

The exhibition at Drawing Room brings together a dynamic selection of recent works by 6 international artists who are committed to the materiality of paper and pencil, showcasing a remarkable attention to detail and skill. In an age of mass media, where the rapid proliferation of images leaves many on the verge of digital exhaustion, A Slice Through the World explores the power of traditional drawing to make us slow down and reconsider how we look at the world. By looking at this ancient communication technology as it meets the newest forms of digitised image culture, A Slice through the World will signal the resilience of drawing as a means of responding to contemporary questions of dialogue and representation, reinforcing its status as an inherently interdisciplinary medium that remains central to artistic practice across the world.
