Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2019 exhibition

A pioneering celebration of drawing returns to Trinity Buoy Wharf in London

“Drawing has seen something of a renaissance in the last twenty years in the UK”, wrote Professor Anita Taylor in The Guardian in 2014. An upcoming exhibition, the annual Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize celebrates this revival of drawing in London’s historic Docklands.

Until recently, resources and opportunities for drawing were few and far between. It was to bridge this gap that the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize was created in 1994. Led since by its founding Director, Professor Anita Taylor, Dean of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design at the University of Dundee, and supported by Trinity Buoy Wharf Trust, this open exhibition has established a reputation for championing excellence in contemporary drawing practice. 2019 marks the 25th anniversary of the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize.

The 68 drawings selected for the 2019 exhibition by Chantal Joffe RA, Andrew Nairne OBE and Dr Dorothy Price successfully toured to The Salisbury Museum before coming to London. They will be on show in The Chainstore at Trinity Buoy Wharf from 18 January to 1 February 2020. The exhibition will be open daily from 11am to 4pm and be free to see.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a wide range of events, held in The Chainstore at Trinity Buoy Wharf. Numerous artists and leading industry professionals will present talks and workshops that celebrate drawing, explore its role, and encourage everyone to participate, with materials supplied by Cass Art.

LOA OPEN CALL 2020 : Artists or curators working around the topic of global identities and transcultural experiences

Share

City:

Eligibility:

Dear artist and curators,

Leave of Absence is opening its 2020 calendar and accepting proposals from artists or curators working around the topic of global identities and transcultural experiences. Submissions will be accepted from now until December 30th 2019. All proposals should be submitted digitally in PDF form to leaveofabsence.london@gmail.com.

Leave Of Absence is a self-sustaining art space that exists to explore the positioning of contemporary art, its creators and viewers in a transient age. LOA is hidden inside a private, gated courtyard off Dalston Lane, a small white cube space with limited opening hours to the public. Founded by five artists with different backgrounds, each nominated three artists to consider making work for the space: one friend, one inspiration and one artist that does not have the right to live and work in the UK. Exhibited artists then go on to make their own nominations, creating a self-augmenting network of connected ideas.

We curate four LOA nomination exhibitions and two invited projects a year. The aim of the open call is to open up the dialogue between the existing exhibitions. 

 

Proposal

Topics connected with:

• third culture imaginations

• (reverse) integration

• technology and nation

• language in translation and hybridisation

• superstitions and customs

• cross-cultural intimacies

• diaspora artists

• imagined communities

• transnational mobility

will be taken into consideration.

 

Deadline: 
12/30/2019
