The Dobell Drawing Prize is an unparalleled celebration of drawing technique and innovation. First launched in 1993 as an initiative of the Sir William Dobell Art Foundation, it continues to act as a barometer for the enduring relevance and changing role of drawing within contemporary art practice. This National Art School touring exhibition showcases a selection of 44 finalists from the 2021 Prize. It includes Euan Macleod‘s winning drawing, chosen by guest judge and acclaimed artist Lucy Culliton. Presenting a range of material approaches – from animation, collage and paper weaving to charcoal, ink and watercolour – the exhibition demonstrates the remarkable vitality and scope of contemporary Australian drawing.
