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


Including works using every imaginable technique, Drawing Biennial 2019 affirms the centrality of drawing to all spheres of artistic production. 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.
