Master Drawings London 2009
Saturday, 4 July 2009 - Friday, 10 July 2009
Trinity Contemporary presents In Between the Lines: Recent British Drawings. A selection of contemporary drawings by 34 British artists.
29 Bruton Street
W1J 6QP London
In collaboration with Trinity Contemporary, the curator Jeremy Cooper has gathered a selection of works mostly on paper by artists of different ages and from different backgrounds. Cooper threads ‘the Lines’ between 58 works by personalities such as Gary Hume, Layla Curtis, Michael Landy, Frances Richardson, Gavin Turk, Siân Bowen, Tim Head, Jane Dixon, Claude Heath and Tracey Emin. A common graphic and experimental approach leads also to the discovery of younger artists, like Kate Atkin and James Brooks, from whom unusual sculptural drawings have been commissioned by Trinity Contemporary especially for this show.
The exhibition is also an opportunity for Trinity Contemporary directors John Winter and Jonathan Mennell to present a well documented and fully illustrated catalogue written in an intimate tone by Jeremy Cooper focussing on each artist, their work and their diverse techniques of drawing. In her enlightening essay to introduce the catalogue, Catherine Lampert, former director of the Whitechapel Gallery, invites us to share her latest reflections on the art of drawing and, in particular, her thoughts about the exhibition selection.
This first Trinity Contemporary exhibition will be launched on 25 June and will run until 10 July. It will be part of Master Drawings London 2009.
