MIAMI, FL.- The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum at Florida International University will launch its first on-line exhibition and project space and host an introductory panel discussion for the project on Wednesday, April 3, 2013, from 5 pm-6 pm. Along with the panel, a reception will usher in The Drawing Project; What is line and how does it travel through space. This exhibition/project space will be live through September 3rd 2013, and the panel and reception are open to the public and free of charge.

The act of drawing is quite possibly the oldest form of art. Through the millennia, it has shifted shapes with cultural changes and innovations, even taking on the form of written language as pictographs, cuneiform, and hieroglyphs turned into written words and binary code. This project responds directly to the notion that a drawing is not only an object, but an action as well: the trace of a point in motion. This definition and the constantly shifting boundaries of space are what the project is seeking to respond to.

The Drawing Project at the Frost Art Museum is a collaborative investigation curated by artist/educator and FIU graduate Emmy Mathis. The on-line exhibition/project space consists of an on-line exhibition where pieces from the Frost’s permanent collection, many of which have never been exhibited in the museum, are displayed along with international work culled by the Drawing Research Network, work by local Miami artists, and a special curatorial section of work from contemporary women artists from the Girls’ Club Collection. Artists include internationally renowned artists such as Jean Cocteau, Shirin Neshat and Robert Rauschenberg, as well as practitioners in the academic field of drawing such as Andrea Kantrowitz and John Adams, and local artists including Jenny Brillhart and Kevin Arrow. The website also hosts a project space that is open for proposals and an on-line residency whose first artist will be Jenny Brillhart for the months of April & May.

Extending beyond the screen, The Drawing Project continues into the tangible world in the form of public programs including a series of webisodes, talks, panel discussions and events, inviting the public to experience the project in a multitude of forms and make their own decisions regarding what defines line and what spaces it can it occupy.

Parts of the website www.drawingproject.frostartmuseum.org are currently live, and the full site will launch April 3rd. Although the exhibition will be complete, the site itself is not finite. Check back regularly to see additions to the ‘to write’ and ‘to document’ galleries, as well as the Project Space and the On-line Residency.

Exhibition panel and opening attendees are also invited to attend Frost Art Museum’s MFA opening exhibition and view their other current exhibitions:

• José Manuel Ballester: Concealed Spaces
• Eugene Savage: The Seminole Paintings
• The Healing Spirits of the Waters
• American Sculpture in the Tropics
