'Markers' was the inaugral exhibition of ACiD hosted and supported by the British Council in India during 2002. It was followed by a series of lectures at the British Council Gallery in New Delhi.
Below is the introduction to the exhibition information published in India.
ACiD holds as a primary purpose, the promotion and development of best practice in drawing. This is by the facilitation of exhibitions, publications, seminars
and conferences. It acts as a focal point for all art and design disciplines represented in the Faculty; Fine Art, Graphic Design, Illustration, Applied Arts, Textile,
Fashion, Animation and Media. It is also exploring the development of links with the disciplines of Architecture, Education and Engineering. The Drawing
Research Group therefore intends to support the full breadth and depth of practice, research and teaching related to drawing within the context of foundation,
under-graduate, post-graduate and professional practice through the work of academic staff and visiting practitioners. ACiD does consider drawing activities and
related debates across a spectrum that includes both traditional approaches such as Life Drawing and the range of uses associated with new technologies.
In recognition of the well-established depth and breadth of interest in drawing demonstrated over many years by the Faculty of Art, Design and Media, we have
recently appointed Deanna Petherbridge as the Arnolfini Professor of Drawing in collaboration with the Arnolfini Gallery which is intended to build on the
international reputation of particular Faculty staff in the area of drawing. Building on this the Faculty has recently been awarded the necessary funding for the
Evelyn Williams Drawing Fellowship for 2003-04 and the Henry Moore Fellowship in Drawing (2003-05).
The DRG is therefore providing a focus for creative and theoretical developments related to contemporary drawing practice. It also seeks to make an increasingly
International contribution to the understanding and practice at all levels. This exhibition, initially formulated as a link between the College of Art, New Delhi, is part
of this process. An exchange of ideas and debates in one of the most vitally alive areas in art and design.
The staff and students selected for this exhibition are, in one form or another, engaged with drawing, teaching and research at UWE. We intend the exhibition to
reveal the many faceted commitment to this particular activity current at this moment in time.
