An exhibition of drawings and comics by faculty member Martha Newbigging created within their doctoral research project.
“Experiments in drawing turned to queerness in childhood as the puzzle of an unintelligible subject. Drawing to attend to moments of significance. Approaching not with words, rather with gesture, with marks, with touch. Drawing to charm and care for the self. As my mother said, drawing is more than seeing.”
