    A Politics of Drawing is a group exhibition of work by eight contemporary artists, engaging ideas and methods of critical aesthetic assessment and transformation. Rather than showcasing works that merely illustrate political ideas and agendas, Philip Glahn (Tyler School of Art, Temple University) and John O’Connor (Sarah Lawrence College) have collaborated to bring into dialogue practices concerned with what William Kentridge called the “semi-mechanical” aspect of drawing: an engagement with the sensible world as both historically determined and aesthetically constructed, an art making that traces, navigates, and reports as much as it creates, proposes, and imagines.
