DRAWING ROOM London
Exhibition and online auction of over 200 unique works on paper.
Exhibition: 5 March – 30 April
Auction goes live online: 16 April – 30 April
Featuring over 200 new and recent works on paper by established and emerging artists, Drawing Biennial 2015 offers fresh insights into the most exciting currents in contemporary art today. Artists have been selected by Drawing Room directors Mary Doyle, Kate Macfarlane and Katharine Stout, with additional nominations by a panel of leading international artists, museum directors, curators and collectors. Each selected artist has been invited to make an original drawing in any medium on an A4 sheet of paper, which is exhibited in the gallery in a democratic hang that gives each artist equal prominence.
Drawing Biennial 2015 culminates in an auction which runs for the final two weeks of the exhibition, with all works available to bid for via our website. With each drawing starting at only £250 this is a rare opportunity for both new and established collectors to acquire unique works on paper. The sale of the works, which have been kindly donated by all participating artists, raises vital funds to support Drawing Room’s programme over the next two years.
