Contemporary Drawing from 1960s to Now by Katharine Stout.
This is a timely introduction to the role of drawing in contemporary art which promotes drawing from a previously overlooked practice to a key artistic catalyst. Includes work from some of the most important artists of the last fifty years.
Including work by artists such as Ellsworth Kelly, Agnes Martin, Richard Serra, Philip Guston, Claes Oldenburg, Len Lye, Gordon Matta-Clarke and Richard Long, the book explores how practitioners have addressed and redefined notions of medium specificity in relation to drawing, and how it has been particularly significant for artists pursuing an interdisciplinary practice. Katharine Stout contextualises the medium within history and with the current treatment of drawing by theoreticians, institutions, the art market, and education systems, concluding that drawing is a popular, diverse and ever evolving medium.
