An exhibition and auction of over 200 specially made drawings by an international line-up of artists
Drawing Room Directors invite artists to make an original drawing in any medium on an A4 sheet of paper. The range of artists who have contributed demonstrates the crucial role that drawing plays in contemporary art and further endorses Drawing Room as a leading institution for contemporary drawing internationally. Some of the highlights this year include Fiona Banner's Snoopy Baron Drawing; Paul Noble's Plinth and Sculpture that offers a rare opportunity to purchase a drawing relating to his Nobson Newtown series; Michael Landy's Poverty, Chastity and Obedience, which forms part of his new body of work that explores the saints and their attributes which he is undertaking whilst in residence at the National Gallery; and Paula Rego's Nursing Practise, an exquisite drawing depicting a pair of lovers. Also included are artists who rarely make available their drawing, including Ed Atkins, who works primarily with high-definition video and writing, Haroon Mirza, light and sound installation, and Tai Shani, performance.
