Preview: Jerwood Drawing Prize 2016

6:30 PM – 8:30 PM @ Jerwood, 171 Union Street · London, SE1 0LN

The largest and longest-running annual open exhibition for drawing in the UK, presented in collaboration with Bath Spa University. In 2016 works will be selected for inclusion by Glenn Brown, artist; Stephanie Buck, Director of Kupferstich-Kabinett at Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden; and Paul Hobson, Director of Modern Art Oxford.





7:00 PM – 10:00 PM @ Béton Brut, Unit 2, 30 Felstead St, London E9 5LG

The exhibition is taking place against the backdrop of the fast changing and rapid redevelopment of Hackney Wick, which is putting the country’s largest artist community under threat. Turk’s ‘Transit’ launches a series of new etchings derived from the emissions of his white transit van. This body of work has been printed locally by Tom’s Etching Studio. Profits from the sale of the prints will go towards the ongoing aims of local social enterprise Hackney Wick and Fish Island CIC.
