This publication Lines towards Another accompanies the exhibition Drawings and correspondence, held at the IMA 24 March–2 June 2018. The exhibition surveys the central role drawing plays in Tom Nicholson’s engagement with contemporary political realities in Australia and beyond.
This is the first monograph of Nicholson’s work, edited by Amelia Barikin and Helen Hughes, and co-published by the IMA, the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, and Sternberg Press. Tony Birch, Bridget Crone, Jacqueline Doughty, Anthony Gardner, Anneke Jaspers, Ryan Johnston, John Mateer, Shelley McSpedden, Mihnea Mircan, Grace Samboh, Ann Stephen, and the editors themselves give compelling insight into Nicholson’s diverse material approach, political practice, and historical context.
