To coincide with the opening of 650mAh’s group exhibition drawings, Jeffrey Alan Scudder will deliver Drawing is the Best Videogame, an interactive performance lecture on drawing as part of his Radical Digital Painting lecture series.
For Drawing is the Best Videogame, Scudder will develop his ideas around contemporary drawing and painting, contextualising their connection to historical processes and digital technology. Scudder will present homegrown software inventions and new theories about drawing, painting and picture making.
In addition to software demos, new theoretical models of image resolution, computer literacy, and picture making are illustrated, described and connected to the history of abstraction in drawing and painting. New ways of approaching drawing are also presented.
