2017 – ArticulateUpstairs Sydney

Drawing Collective Sydney 2017 showcases the work of the members of the Collective and their guests in ArticulateUpstairs, a place known for its
commitment to contemporary art.
Member artists and guests from ten countries are featured in this exhibition. Various forms of contemporary drawing with novel ideas, approaches and
mediums are explored.

The Drawing Collective is a virtual community of artists who draw as part of their individual practice and are committed to our mission to establish connections
among artists across borders and cultural divides. We are united in our search for the universal common ground though our work and interactions.
We are deeply honored to be hosted by Articulate Upstairs in Sydney.
We thank the directors of this organization and our member curator Barbara Halnan for this opportunity and dedicated effort in organizing this show.
I feel very honored to offer my deepest gratitude to our member artist Erdem Kucuk-Koroglu for his ongoing effort designing and publishing our catalogs. His generosity and untiring dedication was key in bringing this beautiful catalog to life.
Last but not least, I would like to thank the members of our Collective and our guests for their enthusiastic participation.
