24 Hour Drawing Project
The 24 Hour Drawing Project is an event in which artists start and finish a work of art in a continuous 24 hour period. It is a combination of intensive studio practice, public performance, and endurance test. Each artist works on a piece of their own which relates to ideas of time, duration, activity, repetition, or labor. Visitors can view the project and speak with the artists while they work creating a personal dialogue between artist, their work, and the viewer. The project was begun by Australian artist, Hanna Bertram, and American artist, Kendall Nordin, in Melbourne, Australia in 2005. The 7th performance of the 24 Hour Drawing Project, in 2010, was the first to include 13 artists and 3 venues in two seperate countries (Australia and China). The artists were connected via the web for the duration of the project allowing for an open exchange of ideas and perspectives from both artists and spectators.
