Footprints Across Fresh Snow

Footprints Across Fresh Snow: Drawing and Mark Making Across Disciplines

Private View: 27 January 2011, 17.00 – 20.00

Dates: Friday 28 January – Friday 4 March

Venue: Wimbledon Space, Wimbledon College of Art, Merton Hall Road, SW19 3QA

Footprints Across Fresh Snow explores drawing for a purpose. It focuses on process, ideas, and cross-disciplinary dialogues that centre on communicating ideas to an audience, client or user. The exhibition brings together drawings by practitioners from the disciplines of facial reconstruction, ceramics, jewellery design, architecture, illustration, graphic design and performance. In doing so, it stimulates connections between practices and subjects through drawing. The exhibition of diverse drawing practices will set the context for the new MA Drawing (subject to validation) course at Wimbledon College of Art.

Live events programmed for the opening event include Katherina Radeva’s ‘Fallen Fruit – now here, now gone’ and Jeremy Radvan’s ‘Theatre Optique’.

The exhibition is curated by Simon Betts, Kelly Chorpening, Stephen Farthing RA, Trevor Hewett and Michael Pavelka.
