The order of drawing is an online exhibition of international contemporary drawing, selected by guest curator Arno Kramer (Netherlands). The exhibition accompanies the Drawing Research Network‘s 2023 Drawing in Relation series of research presentations organised by the Drawing Research Group (DRG) at Loughborough University.  Submissions were invited to the call for drawings in response to the theme of ‘drawing in relation’ suggesting that drawing can be considered relational; it is a means by which relations and the conditions through which they are created, maintained, and broken can be investigated.  Submissions were invited from anyone practicing drawing in a traditional or expanded way and we received over 300 drawings from artists across the globe in response. From the submissions, Arno selected 30 drawings that represented diverse approaches and responses to the theme.
