Sculptors Drawings: Pangolin, London
The exhibition focuses on the unique way sculptors approach drawing. It explores whether there is a difference between sculptors and other traditional disciplines in the treatment of two dimensional works on paper to communicate three dimensional objects and challenges the notion that sculptors don’t draw.

We wish to illustrate the broad range in which they all work from the inclusion of anything from small intimate notebook sketches to much larger works in order to give visitors to the exhibition a greater knowledge of the evolving history and large breadth of this artistic method.
Sculptors’ Drawings & Works On Paper is a collaboration between the two galleries based at Kings Place, Pangolin London and Kings Place Gallery. Opening in September the exhibition will span the entire public space at Kings Place over three levels and will include over 100 works on paper dating from the beginning of the 20th century to the present day by both established and emerging sculptors. Works to be included range from that of Henry Moore, Eduardo Paolozzi and Eduardo Chillida, to Tim Noble & Sue Webster and Sarah Lucas.
Sculptors’ Drawings & Works On Paper is intended as a celebration of this specific genre and will be the largest exhibition of its kind to date.

A point that has often been under discussion as illustrated here by Henry Moore...
