On Saturday 19th November The Royal Standard in collaboration with Drawing Paper will be hosting a drawing marathon, with 12 hours of activity planned from midday to midnight.
Through a series of talks, performances and timed drawing sessions we will be exploring this most primal of mediums and its relationship with, and response to, other creative practices. With planned talks, performances and an ongoing “drop-in and draw” space, you are invited to come along and see what happens as drawing sessions collide and collude with a range of other disciplines in a mash-up of improvisatory revelation.
From spoken word performances, video and music in the form of electronic soundscapes, experimental rhythmic indulgences, classical renditions and pop soundings we have a day full of activities for you to experience and explore.
We are keen on direct participation in our experiment but if you’d like to come along to just watch and discuss what’s going on then feel free to drop-in and enjoy the performances, to view drawings in our gallery space and take some refreshment in our knocked-up lounge area.
We will be opening the gallery again on Sunday 20th November to assess the results of the previous day’s activity so please join us to examine what has been produced. Continue reading
