In the spring of 2020, Drawing Tube launched “Signals” in collaboration with artists working in different environments all over the world. It was interested in exploring what artists were thinking during the pandemic. Artists were encouraged to contribute small visual and textual fragments from their daily life that materialized from hand and eye movements as well as spontaneous thoughts.
Collectively, these become signals of this new era and a space to reconsider how drawing can work as a means to translate and perceive changing reality.
