Michael Craig-Martin: Drawings 1967-2002
Library Shelf Location 18.CRAI
Publication Date 2011
Description Hardback catalogue with introduction by David Cleaton-Roberts and transcript of an interview between the artist and Helen Waters. 80 pages with 61 colour illustrations and full drawing documentation. Alan Cristea Gallery will present the first ever exhibition of drawings by the conceptual artist Michael Craig-Martin from 5 May until 4 June 2011. To be staged in the year that Craig-Martin celebrates his 70th birthday, the show spans four decades of his career; none of the 60 unique drawings, including studies for major works and commissions, have ever been seen in the public domain and this exhibition represents the first time that this aspect of his work has been brought together and documented. All the works are hand-drawn, with the majority pre-dating his use of the computer - but will also include wall drawings which he will prepare in situ in the Alan Cristea Gallery ahead of the opening of the show, using his traditional technique of black masking tape. This exhibition tracks the development of his signature artistic ‘vocabulary' of everyday ordinary objects including globes, sandals, pianos, tables, chairs and books, and gives new insight into his innovative and radical artistic practice, from early works made of tape on drafting film, to those produced at the dawn of the digital age, which challenged and changed the concept of drawing as we know it.
