Each artist’s practice illustrates how drawings can tell complex stories with the simplest of means.

Marcel van Eeden, Rinus Van de Velde and Otobong Nkanga have created new works for the show. The exhibition also features existing drawings and animations by Marcel Dzama, Inci Eviner, Yun-Fei Ji, William Kentridge, Nalini Malani, Raymond Pettibon and Amy Sillman.

The artists portray an array of subject matter, such as human relationships, geography, politics and mythology, in materials that range from traditional pencil and charcoal, to modern methods of animation.

The exhibition is accompanied by a lively, lavishly illustrated publication, designed by Stinsensqueeze and featuring texts by curator Roger Malbert.
