This Core Lecture series talk, introduced by drawing faculty and Assistant Professor of Practice Christine Garvey, will look at drawing as a powerful language of questioning. From the first recorded marks of cave paintings, to Galileo’s drawings of the moon, these examples and others will help us consider the uniquely-human impulse to draw what we see, and drawing's evolution as a tool for expression and inquiry. Garvey will share her approach to drawing in her own work, including her 2016 Fulbright research at Florence's La Specola museum.
