The Drawing Obsession

02.03.-02.09.2018


Opening: Kick-off 01.03.2018, 7 pm
Curated by: Roman Grabner
Venue: BRUSEUM

While a large retrospective is devoted to Günther Brus in Vienna in early 2018 to mark his upcoming 80th birthday, the BRUSUEM opens its rooms to a young generation of artists who have something in common with the ‘landlord’, Herr Brus: their obsession with drawing. On display are not only the wide variety of expressive forms offered by the medium of drawing, but also the process of drawing itself.

Young artists from Europe – including Studio Asynchrome, Gabór Kóos and Marianne Lang – will each come for four weeks to Graz to create new works in front of the public in the BRUSEUM, and thus break up the conventional structure found in exhibitions. Therefore, on the opening day, no single work will be on show, given that the exhibition develops throughout its duration. Whilst this happens, the public is invited to come back again and again, stay for a cup of tea or coffee, and experience the process of creating art. Visitors can also become active themselves, for the so-called permanent exhibition room will temporarily be converted into a ‘participation room’.

To accompany this exhibition, we are organising regular concerts of contemporary music jointly with the Art University of Graz, so as to shed light on parallel structures in the two forms of expression.
