A British Museum touring exhibition Drawing attention: emerging artists in dialogue to open at York Art Gallery this October as part of a new Season of Drawing
Visitors will be able to discover some of the most compelling up-and-coming names in the field of contemporary drawing, displayed alongside works by celebrated artists within the British Museum collection of prints and drawings.
These new acquisitions include works by some of the youngest living artists ever collected by the British Museum, presented alongside works by celebrated artists from Mary Delany and Édouard Manet to Barbara Hepworth, Andy Warhol and Yinka Shonibare.
‘Drawing attention: emerging artists in dialogue’ is part of a broader ‘Season of Drawing’ which runs until 21 April 2024. This season of events and exhibitions will include a new commission created by Ugonna Hosten, an exhibition of works created by participants in the York Art Gallery’s Teenage Art School, and a drawing studio space.
Adults £7, Concessions available.
‘Drawing attention: emerging artists in dialogue’ is supported by the Dorset Foundation in memory of Harry M Weinrebe.
The ‘Season of Drawing’ at York Art Gallery is supported by The Little Greene Paint Company.
