The International Drawing Competition, integrated in the Encontrarte Amares 2017, aims to create a platform for the development and consolidation of what is understood as the artistic dimension of drawing.
Our goal is to promote reflection on the role of drawing in the contemporary art world and the potential inherent to its increasing autonomy in relation to the process of artistic creation. That is, drawing is no longer seen solely as an auxiliary method, but also as an independent creative process. And that is the dimension of drawing that interests us.
For this reason, the tools (intellectual and physical) that support the singularity of this discipline will be valued, as well as, the search for new paths and meanings, regarding its autonomy and contributing to its growth and acknowledgement.
