The Peripatetic School: Itinerant Drawing from Latin America curated by Tanya Barson for the Drawing Room


25 November 2011 - 19 February 2012
Mateo Lopez Nowhere Man 2011 (detail)

This exhibition presents the work of artists from across Latin America who share an engagement with the landscape, whether urban or rural. More specifically, they are concerned with travelling or moving through the landscape, and frequently with walking, which is combined in their work with diverse approaches to drawing.

The exhibition highlights the portability of drawing, its potential for teaching and learning, and its ability to move beyond the confines of the page.
