Le Petit Néant – The Small Nothingness


Nothingness – the state or condition of being nothing; nonexistence / complete insignificance or worthlesness

Le Petit Néant is a new annual publication devoted to the the art of drawing and is one of the current guest bloggers for the Accordcence programme. Over the course of 3 months a series of contributors to the publication will explore the fluidity and constant transformation of the art and practice of drawing; they will look at what drawing might be in relation to digital mediums, focusing on its relationships with the art world, the market, the paper and the screen.

To open our series of blog post we would like to give you some information on the first issue of Le Petit Néant
