LDG at The British Museum: Drawing Spaces

  • The British Museum Great Russell Street London, England, WC1B United Kingdom (map)

The definition of space in art is an open and varied concept, spaces can be real, everyday, interior or exterior, or they can go beyond and be imagined, abstract and fragmented, they can be a translation of another experience turned into a visual territory.

The drawn space can evade scale and play with our perception; it allows the artist freedom to imagine fictional environments, create preliminary sketches for large sculptures, or configure opposing elements otherwise unable to meet in real life.

In this workshop Lucy McGeown will lead drawing exercises in which you will be encouraged to analyse the composition choices, explore the imagined spaces around the works and find links between them as a whole.
