Drawing Biennial Exhibitions


An exhibition and auction of over 200 unique drawings, showcasing the most exciting artists working today.

The exhibition includes more than 200 new and recent works on paper by leading international artists of different generations.

In the exhibition, artists associated with the medium of drawing such as Charles Avery, Huma Bhabha, Nikhal Chopra and Kathy Prendergast sit alongside those better known as sculptors, such as Richard Deacon, Francis Upritchard and Alison Wilding, or as painters, such as Ryan Mosley and George Shaw.

Culminating in an online auction in the exhibition’s final two weeks, all works are available to purchase from a starting bid of £300. Proceeds from the auction support Drawing Room’s exhibition, learning and publishing programme and growth of its unique study library.

Artists have been invited to make an original drawing by Drawing Room directors Mary Doyle, Kate Macfarlane and Katharine Stout, with additional nominations by leading international artists, museum directors, curators and collectors.

Drawing Biennial 2019 signals the diversity of artists’ imagination, demonstrating the vitality and importance of drawing today.

Contributing artists include Caroline Achaintre (FR), Salvatore Arancio (IT), Art & Language (UK), David Austen (UK), Charles Avery (UK), Marc Bauer (CH), Rana Begum (BD), Yifat Bezalel (IL), Huma Bhabha (PK), Juliette Blightman (UK), Martin Boyce (UK), Sonia Boyce (UK), Lisa Brice (ZA), Andrea Büttner (DE), Jyll Bradley (UK), Nidhal Chamekh (TN), Alice Channer (UK), Nikhal Chopra (IN), Rhys Coren (UK), Ronald Cornelissen (NL), Jesse Darling (UK), Richard Deacon (UK), Nicolas Deshayes (FR), Aleana Egan (IE), Leo Fitzmaurice (UK), Ryan Gander (UK), Margarita Gluzberg (RU), Patrick Goddard (UK), Lothar Götz (DE), Penny Goring (UK), Antony Gormley (UK), Oona Grimes (UK), Nilbar Güreş (TR), David Haines (UK), Mona Hatoum (PS), Karl Holmqvist (SE), Marie Jacotey (FR), Chantal Joffe (UK), Idris Khan (UK), Radhika Khimji (OM), Michael Landy (UK), Alice Maher (IE), Lisa Milroy (CA), Ryan Mosley (UK), Ciprian Mureşan (RO), Timo Nasseri (DE), Paul Noble (UK), David Noonan (AU), Athena Papadopoulos (CA), Fani Parali (GR), Cornelia Parker (UK), Hetain Patel (UK), Kathy Prendergast (IE), Hiraki Sawa (JP), George Shaw (UK), Raqib Shaw (IN), Devlin Shea (US), Mark Sheinkman (US), Bob & Roberta Smith (UK), Emma Talbot (UK), Jiří Thýn (CZ), Nicola Tyson (UK), Francis Upritchard (NZ), Sandra Vasquez de la Horra (CL), Jessica Voorsanger (US), Mark Wallinger (UK), Alison Wilding (UK), Bedwyr Williams (UK), Rose Wylie (UK), Jérôme Zonder (FR) and many others.
