16 June – 11 August 2022
I’m delighted to be exhibiting Herr und Frau Schmeida in this show at The Whitaker in Rawtenstall. Sixty Drawings + Ten explores, defines and celebrates the practice and the locality of drawing in its diverse forms. Artists from a range of different disciplines who exhibited in the first exhibition in 2012 in Manchester, will present a new work, alongside other selected artists to celebrate a decade of the project’s development and to exhibit at The Whitaker.
The curatorial theme remains the consistent thread running through all iterations of the project, which continues to pose such key questions as: where can drawing be situated in an artist’s practice? Does it come after, before or during? Is drawing secondary or primary?
Sixty Drawings + Ten is accompanied by a dedicated project website designed by ToBeContent which delivers images, biographies and statements from all participating artists, along with a range of associated material: https://60plus10.com/
