Richard Deacon CBE is considered one of the most important British sculptors of his generation and has exhibited internationally since the early 1980s. He won the Turner prize in 1987, and in early 2014 a major retrospective of his work will be presented at Tate Britain. The activity of drawing is crucial to his work as a sculptor which explores the manner in which a range of materials react to methods of manipulation and construction.
This is Drawing Room’s fourth artist-curated exhibition, a strand of the program that aims to provide audiences revelatory access to the ideas that inform the work of key contemporary artists.
The Drawing Room gallery is open Tuesday to Friday 11am–6pm and Saturday 12–6pm. On the last Friday of every month the gallery is open late until 8pm.
