Pushing Paper: Contemporary Drawing from 1970 to Now. British Museum 2019-20

One of my drawings from the British Museum’s Collection, Blind Monstrance Drawing n.8, was included in this show at the British Museum in 2019-2020.

From the British Museum’s exhibition listing:

Celebrating the power of contemporary drawing, this display explored how artists have used drawing to examine themes including identity, place and memory, pushing the boundaries of the medium further than ever before. The exhibition is now on tour.

Featuring work from well-known artists including Rachel Whiteread, Richard Deacon and Anish Kapoor, as well as emerging artists such as Rachel Duckhouse and Adel Daoud, the selection was chosen from more than 1,500 contemporary drawings in the Museum’s collection.

Currently enjoying a resurgence in practice and teaching, this display was a timely celebration of drawing. As the first display dedicated solely to contemporary drawing, Pushing Paper marked an important moment for the Museum and its contemporary collections.
