Drawing provides us with a space where you can slow down. We can even think through drawing. The fusion of thinking and drawing has become the foundation for the creation of this curatorial project, Thinking Through Drawing, in which Czech, Slovak, and Ukrainian artists Darja Lukjanenko (UA), Veronika Holcová (CZ), Jiří Kovanda (CZ), Jan Pfeiffer (CZ), and Dorota Sadovská (SK) are presented. The drawing line, whether on paper or in space with materials, is a powerful visual gesture of contemporary interdisciplinary artists. Drawing as an intimate gesture is perceived by many artists as the most direct medium for expressing ideas with a specific sense of attentiveness to noticing the large or small histories that are unfolding. The sketch of an idea has accompanied artists from time immemorial. By combining mind, eye, and hand, they can capture the world around us.

TRYST is a new international art fair for artist-run spaces and collectives. It also includes an international conference addressing the needs and future of global exchange among artists from artist-run spaces, collectives, and organizations.
