Sixty Drawings + Ten16th June 2022 - 11th August 2022
Location: THE WHITAKER MUSEUM & ART GALLERY. Haslingden Road, Rossendale, England BB4 6RE, United Kingdom
In 2012, artist and curator Carolyn Curtis Magri was inspired to celebrate drawing as a practice and a process by project managing and co-curating an exhibition of 60 artists’ drawings at Bankley Gallery in Levenshulme, Manchester with the artist and curator Gary James Williams. Sixty artists from Manchester Studio Groups and Manchester Metropolitan University were invited to exhibit one drawing each.
Ten years on, Sixty Drawings + Ten, the second iteration of the project, will take place at the Whitaker Museum and Art Gallery 16 June -11 August 2022 and will include new work by the artists selected from the first exhibition, along with an additional ten artists invited to celebrate a decade of the project’s development. The original curatorial theme remains consistent and continues to explore, define and celebrate the locality and discipline of drawing in its diverse forms within the practices of selected participating artists.
Performances, screenings, podcasts, workshops and group Q&A sessions exploring the process of drawing in the artists’ practices will take place at the Whitaker Museum and Gallery https://thewhitaker.org and viewable on the dedicated website https://60plus10.com Visit the websites for more on the ongoing project, the artists involved and the dates and details of all the events.
