The National Art School is proud to present Conjunctures, a major new exhibition by artist Hannah Quinlivan commissioned for The Drawing Gallery.

The Canberra based artist works in expanded fields of drawing across installation, light, weaving, drawing, sculpture with time-based works.

This exhibition is informed by Raymond William’s concept of the “structure of feeling”. Williams proposes that the patterns of thought of each generation share characteristic impulses, restraints, and tones, similarities structured by their conjunctural and geographical circumstances. The works in this exhibition aim to create a complex and affectively engaging visual environment that heightens awareness of the structures of feeling.

The atmosphere of a place is not just a reflection of its physical environment, but is also a complex interplay between material, social, sensory and emotional elements. The new spatial drawings for the National Art School provide an invitation to explore the intricate connections between place and the social structure of feeling. Working within the expanded field of drawing, this body of work seeks to draw out and amplify the affective atmospheres of our time.
