To project, in this context, is to launch. This presupposes on the one hand a thrower, and on the other the material thrown. The title of this exhibition of Drawings was given by Professor Manuel Casal Aguiar. His particular sensibility and openness of spirit has enabled him, during his years as a great teacher, to launch with special affection many of his students on a pedagogical career, particularly in higher education, as well as on the difficult contemporary art circuit. This exhibition reveals a great affection and passion for Drawing that this group of students cultivated during their stay at the Faculty of Fine Arts in the University of Oporto.

The Drawings presented here have a sure graphic quality and in many cases a particular irony that touches on conceptual and underground aesthetics with special humour. There are various aesthetic options here, a vast and cohesive plurality in the understanding of Drawing, personal and solid paths anchored in an excellent understanding of contemporary artistic cartography.
