Drawing is the entry point for this book’s examination of a crucial moment in the recent history of exhibitions. It is a vital piece of research, at a time when the medium of drawing has never been so omnipresent, indeed has become one of the most often-displayed mediums in contemporary art spaces. At the same time, drawing surprisingly borrows the format of history painting, the aesthetics of photography and its mechanisms from those of large installations. Thus at a time when the age- old distinction between drawing and other forms of art is tending to disappear or be forgotten, and drawing is displayed and viewed on an equal footing with other artworks, a number of questions need to be addressed.
