For artists today, drawing is no longer supplementary or secondary, but valued as a stand-alone medium and process. Drawing Room has been a substantial player in this changing status through its ambitious exhibitions, publications and participation programme, and we’re delighted to be joined by founder-directors, Mary Doyle and Kate Macfarlane, in conversation with Louisa Buck, contemporary art correspondent for The Art Newspaper.
In this live webinar, streamed during lockdown, the panel discuss their vision for this unique, non-profit institution and explore how the current pandemic has thrown a spotlight on drawing. An art form accessible to all, it has proven itself as the adaptable, provocative and questing medium we know it to be.
