Armed with chalk and a spirit level, Dutch artist Bart Lodewijks (b. 1972) draws abstract white lines on everything from residential buildings in quiet suburbs to street surfaces in bustling city centres.

As part of the abstract art takeover at the Whitechapel Gallery, Lodewijks’ new commission for London draws from
workshops with local young people, where he found out about their relationships to the spaces around them. He is interested in how drawing can be a social process built on trust and conversations with individuals or groups.

The exhibition includes a series of chalk drawings made in response to the Gallery and its surroundings, a newspaper designed in collaboration with Roma Publications and a display of material from past projects.


Generously supported by the Mondriaan Fund, the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and NADFAS: London Area.
