Curated by Deshna Mehta
Venue: GARCIA DE ORTA, PANJIM
Time: 16:00 – 22:00
In the past, Sameer and Lokesh have organised Freedraw sessions at a number of outdoor/indoor spaces in Bombay. The number of people in these sessions have varied from 10 to 50 ranging from art students, professionals to art enthusiasts of different ages. The motive behind these sessions is simple – to draw freely in a new environment. These sessions have yielded interesting results each time. Where we draw influences how and what we draw – not only in the choice of subjects but also the nature of lines and the colour palette. The act of drawing helps us see our subjects better. Freedraw at Story Of Space 2017, spread across two days, will be a unique exercise in understanding how different people gather different impressions of the same space. The drawings will be kept on display at the end of each session.
