Drawing Explained: A film preview and panel discussion

“The very brilliant idea that a simple outline might have the ability to evoke an object or event in its absence, emerges relatively late in the history of drawing”
Stephen Farthing

Tania Kovats chaired a panel discussion at a screening of UAL’s Rootstein Hopkin’s Professor of Drawing, Stephen Farthing’s recent film, Drawing Explained.

Paul Noble, (artist and Turner Prize nominee, 2012) joined curator Isabel Seligman (Bridget Riley Art Foundation Exhibition Curator at The British Museum), Professor Stephen Farthing and Tania Kovats on the panel, to interrogate the film’s content and invite responses from the audience.

The resulting discussion will inform the final cut of Professor Stephen Farthing’s film, intended to be used as an aid to teaching drawing at University of the Arts London.
