Every two years the Drawing Biennial proves to be a highlight in Drawing Room’s programme – a critically acclaimed exhibition showcasing over 200 drawings from some of the most interesting artists working across the globe today. This year’s Biennial is a vibrant pulse-check of contemporary drawing in 2024, as well as a vital fundraiser that provides Drawing Room with funding for the next two years of activity, supporting artists and our community through championing drawing.

Artists are invited to make and donate an A4-size drawing on paper to the Biennial; these drawings are exhibited at the gallery for nine weeks before being auctioned online.

Drawing Biennial 2024 includes contributed works by Emii Alrai, Mamma Andersson, Frank Auerbach, Rana Begum,  Sonia Boyce, Gabriella Boyd, Muhanned Cader, Lubna Chowdhray, Emma Cousin, Andrew Cranston, Richard Deacon, Tacita Dean,  Ryan Gander, Antony  Gormley, Nick Goss, Jake Grewal, Mona Hatoum, Arturo Herrera, Lubaina Himid, Ali Kazim, Serena Korda, Paul Maheke, Anthony McCall, Lisa Milroy, Jade de Montserrat, Paul Noble, David Noonan, Julian Opie, Hardeep Pandhal, Cornelia Parker, Florence Peake, Anna Perach, Heather Phillipson, Cathie Pilkington, Paloma Proudfoot, Alicia Reyes McNamara, Amba Sayal-Bennett, Tai Shani, George Shaw, Raqib  Shaw, Bob & Roberta Smith, Olivia Sterling, Emma Talbot, Liorah Tchiprout, Caroline Walker and many more.
