Chalk the line install detail

Inspired by the words of the late Johnny Cash and the history of chalk lines, Chalk the Line features wall drawings and recent work by artists Kade Valja, Jaz Grady, Jimmy Wags, Al Stark and Tulli Stevens.

From ochre painting within Australia by Aboriginal people, to builders in ancient Egypt, and early cave painters in France, the chalk line has been used throughout art history in many cultures. In contemporary settings, it is also used throughout street art and mural making to create temporary and ephemeral works.

In this exhibition, the artists use the humble chalk line to explore their creativity and artistic practice. Each artist brings their own take on the line in this vibrant transformation of the Main Gallery.
