‘Archimedes’ Last Drawing’ is a collaborative drawing project and exhibition by recent graduates of NCAD Francis Quinn and Fintan Ryan. The project will take place over two weeks at the NCAD Gallery, 100 Thomas Street, Dublin 8. The project will be centred around a monumental drawing, which will be created throughout the run of the exhibition. Five recent graduates of the National college of Art and Design have been invited to take part in the project. Each artist will spend a day working on the drawing and all seven artist will return to work together on the final day of the project. The gallery will be open to the public during the entire project, giving visitors the opportunity to see the artists at work and witness the development of the drawing over time.

The subject of the drawing will be drawing itself, its history, development and current position within the contemporary worlds of art, craft and design.
