Cooper Gallery hosts the 2021 edition of prestigious annual open call exhibition the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize.

The exhibition reflects a broad scope of current drawing practice by artists, architects, designers, and makers at all stages of their careers – living and working across the four nations of the UK as well as Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Cyprus, Denmark, Germany, Greece, India, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Spain, The Netherlands, and the USA.

Drawing has long provided an essential means to bring ideas and issues into focus, and to document the personal, political and social. The prize features drawings made during the global pandemic and the resulting and overlapping crises. Marking time and presence, the act of drawing has formed connections for their makers through a tangible tactile experience that has enabled reflection, expression and communication, resulting in an array of lived, imagined and proposed human experiences.
