THE DRAWING SHOW
Continuing in the effort to advance the interests of unique approaches to the current state of visual art, the Drawing Show, premiered at Verge Art Fair Miami Basel, has proudly continued its commitment to mounting a section devoted exclusively to drawing as a medium that overlaps all disciplines. Now the Drawing Show comes to Multiples. Chicago! The Drawing Show will present drawing as a unique artistic practice, one that is universally accessible, and often the first step in an artist's exercise of ideas that inform both their larger creative practice and the cultivation of new forms of visual art.
As a touchstone to the evolutions influenced by and visited upon artistic practice by the art marketplace and its requisite economic fluxuations, drawing continues to serve as a subversive force, both in its delineation of artistic ideas as well as in its potential to inspire and serve as the first step in production unrestrained by economic categories.
An affordable competition for contemporary artists looking to expose their practice to the unique audiences, collectors and patrons at this year's MULTIPLES. Presented as a special group exhibition, our vetted selection will ensure some of the freshest and most cutting edge results of the artistic process. THERE ARE NO ADDITIONAL FEES for participation in The Drawing Show at MULTIPLES. Chicago.
Premiered at the inaugural Verge: Art Brooklyn, 'Tomorrow Stars' has proven an important platform for artists to receive essential exposure to gallerists, museum curators, press and collectors.

Chicago. Works selected by the panel will be exhibited at Multiples. Chicago in a special artist's spotlight section.
