Drawing Biennial 2013

18 April 2013 – 15 May 2013

Auction finale: Wednesday 15 May, 6-9pm

Over 200 specially made drawings by an international line-up of artists.

This is your opportunity to acquire unique works of art made by over 200 artists in support of Drawing Room’s mission and programme. The proceeds from the Biennial are vital to ensure the continuation of Drawing Room’s programme.Now firmly established in the art world calendar Drawing Biennial 2013 presents the latest developments in contemporary drawing and demonstrates the crucial role that drawing plays in contemporary art practices. 

Curated by Drawing Room directors, over 200 artists are invited to make an original drawing in any medium on an A4 sheet of paper. The Biennial presents an insight into contemporary artists approach and relationship to drawing, often exposing the first intimations of a new body of work, providing insights into previously hidden working processes or revealing atypical modes of work.

The artists also kindly donate their drawings to raise crucial funds for Drawing Room's programme, with the works available on our online auction throughout the four weeks of the exhibition.

Since 2003, Drawing Room has been gifted over 1,300 drawings by established and emerging national and international artists. Participating artists include those who may not be known for their drawing and often their donated drawing initiates a new body of work:

From a starting price of £250, the format of the silent auction means anyone can bid (either on line, on the phone or in person) for an original work of art, whether it is their a first ever purchase, or an acquisitions for a major collection.
