At this late opening of ‘Drawn toInvestigate’, meet the curators Sarah Casey, Gerald Davies & Helen Gørrill,and participating artists.

This exhibition will examine howdrawing today continues to work across the porous boundary between observationand expression, empiricism and invention in a range of investigative practices.‘Science’ is used in the most inclusive sense, embracing all forms of thoroughinvestigation, spanning anthropology to astrophysics, conservation tomathematics, forensics to zoology. This approach builds on John Ruskin’sadvocacy of drawing as a way of seeing and understating the world and hisprescient understanding of the impact of industrialisation on the naturalenvironment.
