Draw To Look is presented in association with MAYK and supported by Royal West of England Academy and Arts Council England. With Thanks to Loft 6D, Interval, Cove Park, and the writings of John Berger and Tania Kovats.

Hannah Sullivan is a Bristol based performance artist invested in reframing and opening creative practices, by focusing thought on what they do. Drawing does many things, it records but it also asks us to pay attention. Hannah is interested in the liveness of observational drawing, the affect this occasion has on our relationship to what we choose to draw, and the resulting marks as maps of our looking. Using a simple drawing exercise Hannah aims to make some time for you to consider what we cultivate when we draw.
