The Drawing Triennial 2019, Human Touch, is curated by Helga-Marie Nordby. It is organised by Tegnerforbundet and produced through a collaboration with Kunstnernes Hus. The triennial opens on November 8th at Kunstnernes Hus, and on November 9th at Tegnerforbundet. In the exhibition, 35 invited artists approach drawing as a basic means for human expression.

About

The exhibition focuses on drawing as a means to explore and process human expression. In it, the curator seeks to create a larger space for reflection around drawing; not to understand it solely as artistic expression, but also as innate language and as a potential in human beings in general: through looking at a drawing, we can see both inwards and outwards, and by drawing, we can formulate what we see. This formulation is not merely an imitation or depiction, for it can take the form of visual ideas or reflection, or it can be a way of searching for something or a means for questioning. The Drawing Triennial 2019 presents works by artists who probe their world through lines, who use drawing as a method for approaching who we are.

The exhibition also draws connections to prehistoric phenomena and drawing as a form of communication that predates writing. It therefore emphasises drawing as a primary form of human expression – in both a physical and a mental sense. The Drawing Triennial’s mediation programme for the public Before and After the Line enables greater reflection around drawing as a universally human form of expression and a tool for understanding the world around us. The programme will function as an activating and reflective frame around the main exhibition.

Tegnetriennalens mangfoldige formidlingsprogram Før og etter streken åpner opp for en større refleksjon rundt tegning som allmennmenneskelig uttrykksform og verktøy for å forstå verden og oss selv. Programmet vil skape en aktiviserende og reflekterende ramme rundt hovedutstillingen. I tillegg presenterer Tegnetriennalen tre gjestespill som både utdyper og utvider triennalens tematikk: Leda og Svanen med Marthe Ramm Fortun og Andrea Galiazzo på Tegnerforbundet, Sjelens ornamenter: ornamentale tegninger i norsk Outsider Art, kuratert av Simone Ritter avdelingsleder ved Trastad samlinger/Sør-Troms museum, etterfulgt av Arkivets arabesk kuratert av Ellef Prestsæter med utgangspunkt i Guttorm Guttormsgaards arkiv, begge på Kunstnernes Hus.
