The Drawing Exchange

The Drawing Exchange

A collaborative project of the National Art School, Sydney and the Adelaide Central School of Art.


In August 2017, more than 20 artists from across Australia converged on the National Art School (NAS) in Sydney and Adelaide Central School of Art (ACSA) to create new, experimental drawings on the walls of both campuses, in an open-to-the-public exchange. There were also live streams of video from Melbourne and Rome.

The artists creating and exhibiting at NAS:

Jonathan McBurnie, Caroline Durre, Susannah Williams, Annelies Jahn, Zhen, Sally Clarke, Polly Joannou, Liz Bradshaw, Sasha Grbich and Roy Ananda.

The artists creating and exhibiting at ACSA:
Daniel Connell, Joe Frost, Sally Parnis, Johnnie Dady, Rob Gutteridge, Margaret Roberts, Ben Denham, Wendy Murray, Yve Thompson, James Dodd, Christopher Orchard and Luke Thurgate.
