Massinissa Selmani's drawing Pretext (2019) will be presented during the Drawing Biennial 2021 at The Drawing Room (London, United-Kingdom) from May 21 to July 5, 2021.
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, with works available to purchase from a starting bid of £300 – 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.
