The repetitions and permutations possible within performance and ritual were always central to the practices of the artist and Benedictine monk Dom Sylvester Houédard. Working with artists as such as John Cage, the Exploding Galaxy and Bob Cobbing, his work explored contemplation, language and sound. Join the artists Montenegro & Fisher as they reflect on pieces in the current exhibition, revisit their sounds and visual strengths, investigate dsh's ideas of translation, trance communication, abstraction and meditation.

THE DAVID ROBERTS COLLECTION UNCRATED. A TALK BY VINCENT HONORÉ
Click to enlarge Talk Jul 8, 2017 3:00pm - 5:00pm
Chief Curator Vincent Honoré reveals the stories behind the David Roberts Collection, a constantly evolving body of over 2,000 works by 700 iconic and emerging artists. He discusses the material and intellectual challenges of looking after a vast number of diverse artworks – some extremely fragile, some mammoth in scale – as they circulate to exhibitions at museums around the world.
 
Over the last 10 years, Honoré has engaged critically with the collection as an “archive of forms and concepts”. Works from the Collection have been activated in different exhibitions at DRAF and internationally: performing in a cabaret, haunting a ghost story, or as characters in a novel.
 
He has commissioned writers to study individual works, from the artist Hannah Black to design critic Emily King to curator Tom Morton, through DRAF’s unique ‘Study’ series. In contrast to the spectacle and acceleration of the art world, the series invites the viewer to focus and “ to enter into a dialogue with the work, to take up multiple viewpoints and to engage with the artwork by, at least, spending some time with it.”
 
Browse ‘Study’ leaflets online here to learn more about works by Victor Man, Carole Bove, Bruce McLean, Martin Boyce, Boyle Family, Michael Simpson, Yto Barrada, Sterling Ruby, Ida Applebroog, Andreas Slominski, Etel Adnan, Phillip Guston, Fiona Banner, Rosemarie Trockel, Charles Avery and Huma Bhabha.

SUMMER SCHOOL : THE BODY POLITIC
Click to enlarge Workshop Jul 17 - 21, 2017 to 12:00am
Drawing Room are pleased to launch 2017’s Summer School, a week long programme of dynamic workshops run by professional artists at the gallery in Bermondsey, London.
 
Ideal for both experienced and beginner artist practitioners, the workshops will enable you to develop work conceptually using a range of material processes. The title of this year’s Summer School is The Body Politic, and calls for all those interested in developing work around this broad and timely theme.
 
The workshop leaders are artists Joy Gerrard, Markus Vater and Phoebe Boswell, each an acclaimed artist whose work has a strong relationship with drawing.
Participants work in the large gallery space with materials provided by Drawing Room, building new skills and techniques on a small and large scale, working both independently and collaboratively. They also have use of the unique Drawing Room Study library for reference and research.
 
The Body Politic
Over the course of the week we will think about the artist both as witness and protagonist. Based on the themes of our current exhibition ‘Graphic Witness’ (to 9 July) the week-long artist led workshops will explore drawing as a graphic means to bear witness, comment on injustice and to prompt social change.
Through workshops we will explore through drawing questions such as: How might we bear witness to the political world around us; particularly as it changes and transforms so explosively? How do we look at the individual versus the collective in today’s networked society? What materials can we employ to convey meaning?  Is it possible to protest through our work? How is the body politic?
Price £250 for the week, materials will be provided
