UNBUILD: a site of possibility:  22 Sep – 10 Dec 2023,  

Unit 1B New Tannery Wy, London, SE1 5WS

As Drawing Room opens in its first, permanent home after twenty years of nomadic activity, UNBUILD: a site of possibility considers the impact of buildings on our bodies, our minds, our memories and our dreams.  The selected artists use expanded forms of drawing to explore how the built environment represents our dreams and aspirations, cultural and physical displacement and the inequities of our patriarchal society.

UNBUILD: a site of possibility is the opening exhibition in our new site in Bermondsey.

Drawing In Social Space: 22 Sep 2023 – 10 Dec 2023 

Drawing in Social Space is an exhibition that encompasses projects that took place during Drawing Room’s period of gallery closure. It is a knowledge exchange partnership between Camberwell College of Arts, University of the Arts London and Drawing Room – a series of projects connecting BA Fine Art students, Drawing Room’s local community partners and artists/collectives from outside of the UK including the Bolivian activist collective Mujeres Creando, Amsterdam-based Russian artist Gluklya and Ghanaian artist Hassan Issah

Social Space’ refers to projects set outside traditional exhibition spaces, where participants have constituted a broad range of disciplines, interests, ages, ethnicities and nationalities. In these projects, ‘drawing’ has been re-imagined as a tool for thinking, discovery, storytelling and communication, creating new connections exploring identity, politics, mapping and place-making.
