Crossing The Line Conference
Firenze, 2015

"The Global Drawing project, linking young artists in the globalized space of communications today,  rather than a simple inventory of current practices, it is such a cartography: it maps new developments here and now,  and the simultaneous openings of new routes resulting from the larger view of the territories of the present. To draw is to situate oneself in space and time. Art gives form to experience, and in doing so it allows artists and viewers to establish a dialogue with time itself, a dialogue made of both memory and anticipation. It allows us to expand our understanding of the many dimensions of our times and spaces, and to locate ourselves within the territories of the past, the present and the future. "
