Gurminder Sikand Tree Spirits 1991

Exhibition: The Goddess, the Deity & the Cyborg

Drawing from the works in The Women’s Art Collection as well as loans from public and private collections, the exhibition explores the enduring appeal of the goddess and traces how artists have adapted and even transformed the goddess into an ambiguous figure undefined by gender or even bodily form.

ALISON WILDING RA: By the Mark - and the Line below the Loaf

Fri 14 June - Sun 22 September

The Heong Gallery

'The thing I like about drawings is that they can float. You don’t think about gravity.'

Alison Wilding RA is best known for her multimedia sculptures, admired internationally for their unexpected interplay between material, form, and space. What is less well known is her drawing practice, which has developed parallel to her sculpture practice across a career spanning over four decades. By the Mark - and the Line below the Loaf brings together series of drawings from the last 30 years alongside a new monumental drawing made for the exhibition. The exhibition is the most extensive display of Wilding’s drawings in a public gallery to date. It is accompanied by a display of small-scale sculpture, selected by the artist.

A catalogue of Wilding’s drawings, ON PAPER, will be published by Ridinghouse in Autumn 2024.

The exhibition is curated by Dr Prerona Prasad.
