Call for Entries: Drawing Annual, Manifest Galleries


A Competitive Annual Publication of Works of Contemporary Drawing and Writing About Drawing

Deadline December 31.

The International Drawing Annual is an extension of Manifest's Drawing Center activities. Its goal is to support the recognition, documentation, and publication of excellent, current, and relevant works of drawing from around the world. A natural question will be "what is drawing?" and that is exactly the question the Annual is meant to investigate from year to year. Furthermore the goal is to ask "what is exceptional drawing?" Therefore submissions are expected to vary, including a range of drawing types, from the most academic to the most experimental, but all with some relevance to the artists' honest understanding of the practice of "drawing."

With the inclusion of a call for writing about drawing Manifest eagerly pursues a deeper understanding of how drawing is realized, discussed, and interpreted in contemporary society. Works of writing will be selected to complement the artwork chosen for inclusion in the publication.
