Library Shelf Location 22.MALB
Publication Date 2018

Hand Drawn Action Packed features 10 international artists whose practice springs from drawing and reveals the medium’s infinite possibilities for narrative invention.

The narrative drive in drawing can take many forms: stories unfolding through a sequence, single images combined with words, or animation. The artists in Hand Drawn Action Packed make imaginative use of all the tools at their disposal – whether it’s a smartphone, a stick of charcoal or pen and ink – for story-telling, fantasy, social critique and political allegory.

The highly-illustrated zine-style publication features texts by exhibition curator Roger Malbert and is an attractive, accessible and diverse collection of ten established international artists.

Artists include: William Kentridge, Amy Sillman, Otobong Nkanga, and Raymond Pettibon, among others.

Published alongside a Hayward Touring show at New Museum and Art Gallery, St Albans (1 September – 11 November 2018); Wolverhampton Art Gallery (15 December 2018 – 3 March 2019); The Hunterian Art Gallery, Glasgow (16 March – 2 June 2019); Glynn Vivian Art Gallery, Swansea (15  June – 1 September 2019).
