In celebration of drawing, Speculations: making thinking drawing brings together archival material with the work of contemporary artists in order to explore the ingenious and imaginative ways in which ideas, materials, space and structure can be evoked and investigated on the flat plane of the paper’s surface.

Speculations: making thinking drawing forms part of the inaugural exhibitions of ‘drawing?’ - a series of exhibitions, discussions, publications, lectures and events based around the theme of drawing, which will take place in various museums and galleries in the North East over the forthcoming year.

Exploring the creative process in art, design, science & technology.
