Faster and slower lines - Lecture and discussions. Hafnarhús, Thursday 15th of December at 8 p.m.

Jean-Philipp Fruehsorge and Birta Guðjónsdóttir

In relation to the exhibition Faster and slower lines, curator Birta Guðjónsdóttir and art historian and art critic Jan-Philipp Fruehsorge will discuss drawing as a contemporary art medium, drawing practices within the visual arts and its broad field of activity.

Birta Guðjónsdóttir will shortly reflect on the exhibition Faster and Slower Lines. The exhibition explores the extensive element of the contemporary drawing through a selection of two- and three dimensional works that all belong to the private art collection of husband and wife Pétur Arason and Ragna Róbertsdóttir. The exhibition is not meant to be a historical overview of the medium but displays its various forms and discoveries.

Art historian, art critic and gallerist Jan-Philipp Fruehsorge has investigated the medium through various projects, exhibitions and writing and will give an insight to his research. Fruehsorge founded his Berlin gallery Fruehsorge Contemporary Drawings in 2003, which focuses exclusively on the presentation and promotion of the medium.

The talk will take place in English.
