Draw Art Fair – the first fair to be held in the UK dedicated to modern and contemporary drawing in all its forms – will be staged in London at Saatchi Gallery from 17-19 May 2019 (VIP/Preview 15-16 May).
More than 50 British and international galleries will take over all three floors of the Saatchi Gallery to present curated solo and group exhibitions of drawings in a museum-style context, showcasing modern masters (Henry Moore, Jean Dubuffet, Francis Picabia, Antoni Tàpies) alongside recent works from the 21st century. Designed to confirm drawing’s place at the core of the creative process, the fair will demonstrate its scope and range with works in every medium, from charcoal stick to video and live performance. Founder and director of Draw Art Fair London, Laurent Boudier, likes to quote Ingres when he wrote: “Drawing is the probity of art. To draw does not simply mean to reproduce contours; drawing is also expression, the inner content”.
