Find out more about Drawing Room, what we do, and our relationship with studio provider Tannery Arts.
Tannery Arts is a small, independent charity concerned with supporting the professional development of emerging and established artists through the provision of affordable studios, promoting their practice through opportunities to exhibit work, develop projects, generate partnerships with local authorities, private property owners and social housing organisations as well as engage in learning activities.
This catalogue is published to coincide with Nowhere is here, curated by The Drawing Room. The international group exhibition taps into the capacity of drawing to capture the contingent quality of the natural environment and our complex relationship with it. Four of the artists have gravitated to London from different parts of the world and all are establishing international profiles. Each artist brings a different relationship to the natural environment, be it imagined, experienced or remembered, emotional or dispassionate. The artists use drawing to create hybrid worlds that could suggest a repositioning of our relationship to nature and society.
Edited by Kate Macfarlane, Co-Director, Drawing Room, London. Essays by Becky Beasley (an artist based in Berlin) and Kate Macfarlane (curator and Co-Director of Drawing Room).
