Hales Gallery is pleased to announce the inclusion of Hew Locke in Pushing Paper: Contemporary Drawing from 1970 to Now, in The Prints and Drawings Room, at the British Museum. Supported by the Bridget Riley Art Foundation. This exhibition will be shown at the British Museum, London before traveling on to Durham, Swansea, Stromness and Barnsley.
Celebrating drawing in its own right, rather than its historic role as preparatory to painting, this display explores how contemporary artists as diverse as Tacita Dean, Richard Deacon, Imran Qureshi and Anish Kapoor have used drawing to examine themes including identity, place and memory. Collaboratively conceived by curators from across the UK, this exhibition follows on from our touring exhibition Lines of thought.
