"A Drawing Exhibition: In association with The Drawing Room"

This Summer Chung King Project, Los Angeles and The Drawing Room, London (UK) are pleased to announce FLIP, a drawing exhibition. Drawings often occupy an ambivalent territory: somewhere between an idea and its realisation. At times they can exploit this ambivalence to reveal, in a particularly intimate way, something specific about their own conception and something more general about the artist's processes and ideas. The drawings in this exhibition range from spontaneous expressions of a
momentary notion to densely and carefully worked narrative or
What they have in common though is a thread
of seriality, of repetition. Sometimes the repetition is one of subject -
the same figure or device is reconsidered from a different perspective or
at a different time, sometimes the repetition is more one of structure ˆ a
formal framing is re-applied to different subjects in a comic-strip format
or in a series of vignettes. Flip considers the ways in which this
repetition can draw attention to the moments or points of change and lend
them yet greater intensity.
The exhibition will include new and specially commissioned works by:
Anton Henning, Takehito Koganezawa, Margarete Hahner, David Godbold,
Rachel Goodyear George Bolster, Adam Dant, Charles Avery, David Austen,
Olivia Plender, Des Lawrence, Paul Noble, Simon English, and Gerten
THE DRAWING ROOM is a curatorial and exhibition practice formed in London
by Mary Doyle, Kate Macfarlane and Katharine Stout. It operates the only
public gallery space in the UK dedicated to the investigation and support
of contemporary drawing practice.
