Featuring work by celebrated artists including Anthony Gormley and Rachel Whiteread, this exciting show opens at our Grand Parade gallery on 12 March. Come and see work from honorary graduate Rachel Whiteread CBE and former Brighton tutor, artist Sir Antony Gormley (creator of Angel of the North), and see the extraordinary range of drawing research taking place within the Creative Futures team.
Drawing practices are deeply embedded in the life of those working and studying in creative fields, with architectural plans, handy explanatory sketches in the office, maps, and even machinery designs all developing because of people’s understanding of drawing.
As well as the exhibition, a free symposium takes place at the Sallis Benney Theatre (13 March) looking at a range of approaches to drawing and exploring why certain drawing practices have different value across the world. Eminent guest speakers include Isabel Seligman, Bridget Riley Art Foundation Curator at The British Museum, and Illustrator and Emeritus Professor John Vernon Lord.
For information on the symposium, as well as the series of drawing workshops, visit the Marks Make Meaning webpage.
