I was selected on application to deliver talks and workshops to University of Hull students at this exhibition which presents 70 master drawings from the museum collection.
This is one of the highlights of Hull City of Culture 2017 and I am privileged to be involved in such a high profile event. The exhibition has attracted record visitor numbers, I’ll be spending 3 days there from 16th-18th January immersing myself in the drawings on show and conversations around drawing and its relevance to contemporary practice.
Part of my remit was to research and design an education pack to accompany the exhibition which can be downloaded by tutors. The workshops will culminate in a collaborative wall based artwork which will take the form of a large scale mind map exploring ideas around drawing including collage, mark making and concrete poetry.
This is a fantastic opportunity to promote drawing, as Bridget Riley said
“For me, drawing is an enquiry, a way of finding out, the first thing I discover is that I do not know’
and Sol LeWitt
‘Things that show the thought process of the artist are sometimes more interesting than the final product’
