On Line: Drawing Through the Twentieth Century aims to radically challenge the accepted definition of a drawing as simply a work on paper. This lecture will trace the key themes of the exhibition—from the emergence of the line from the picture plane early in the century to the political and digital implications of the line in present time—through the work of selected artists, making an argument for a reconsideration of the idea of drawing, and its fundamental position at the heart of twentieth century art.
