Drawing Biennial 2021

21 May—5 July 2021
Drawing Room, London

Alvaro Barrington, Mandy El-Sayegh, Antony Gormley, Rachel Jones, Megan Rooney and Raqib Shaw at the Drawing Biennial 2021 

The Drawing Biennial's celebrated exhibition and auction of over 300 unique artworks provides an invaluable snapshot of how artists are working with drawing today. 

For many, 2020 was the year for drawing and its absorbing immediacy, its accessibility and capacity for processing ideas, thoughts and emotions made it a vital tool for navigating uncertain times. Drawing Biennial 2021 showcases every imaginable technique and represents artists from a range of generations, backgrounds, and heritages. The exhibition culminates in an online auction in its final weeks – an unmissable chance to own works by established greats and discover emerging talent.

Drawing Biennial 2021 not only shines a light on the vibrancy and vitality of drawing today but also helps secure its future for tomorrow. Proceeds will support Drawing Room’s programme and its move to a permanent home in Bermondsey in 2022, where it can continue its exploration of drawing.
