Annotations – Outset Study Commissions




Annotations is a series of artist commissions for Drawing Room’s Outset Study. Including 6 artists over a 3 year period, each artist will undertake a period of supported residency, researching the library collection to create a work for Outset Study  – using the wall, the space, or intervening with the library collection itself.

The current, and sixth Annotations artist is Adam Shield. You can read more about his installation for Outset Study Expo Dream Leech here.

Annotations has been conceived to enable selected artists to develop their practice through research, experimentation and risk taking. The selected artists will help to grow and disseminate Outset Study resources by sharing the research and new ideas that their time in residence generates. Annotations follows on from the artist commission The Rules of the Library, 2013 by Peter Liversidge.
