Amy Swartz, Natalie Waldburger and JJ Lee are presenting “The Drawing Board: Performing the Institution” at this year’s College Art Association Conference in New York City on February 14, 2019. The Drawing Board's submissions was one of the four chosen from 900 proposals. Additionally, The Drawing Board will perform at Queens College at City University New York City, funded by the Canada Council for the Arts Research and Production Grant.

The Drawing Board is a collaborative artists group exploring the intersection of process, labour, drawing and performance. Our creative dialogue seeks to investigate the complexities of work and working relationships in the context of the institute. The artwork examines the role of creativity and collaboration mediated by institutional structures while simultaneously examining the historicized construction of racialized and gendered identity in the colonized space.  In mimicking the role of administration in relation to creative activity, we seek to perform the institutional structure and explore how this affects artistic form, engagement, activity, and individual identity. Using performance and drawing, we explore the embedded systems and practices, which often exclude disproportionately underrepresented communities and individuals.
