Trinity Buoy Wharf Working Drawing Award 2024 - Call for Entries

TBW Working Drawing Award 2024 Selectors: Ben Derbyshire, Andrew Grant, Caroline Grewar

The Trinity Buoy Wharf Working Drawing Award 2024 is open to drawing practitioners worldwide, and aims to explore and promote the role of drawing within architecture, design, and making processes. As a special category of the overall Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize exhibition, it has a separate online Entry Process and Selection Panel, more information on how to enter can be found here. The deadline for registration of entries is Thursday 19 June at 5pm

The Working Drawing Award aims to explore, expand and enhance our knowledge and understanding of working drawings today. It is anticipated that architects, designers, engineers, makers, planners, and scientists, amongst others, who use drawings to ideate, to plan and propose concepts, to communicate ideas and designs, and who make drawings from which something can or will be made, fabricated or constructed, will submit their drawings. For this Working Drawing Award, a working drawing is broadly understood to be a drawing from which something else can or will be made; a drawing that illustrates and explains an idea as part of a process towards making, production or construction; a drawing that facilitates or documents the development of an idea; a drawing that demonstrates notation or ideation; or that forms a drawn instruction to a maker.

It is anticipated that drawings for architecture, design, engineering, and other disciplines that involve construction and making as well as within some art practices, will be submitted for this award and exhibition, and that we will receive submissions of notational and planning drawings, drawings that relate to ideation, sketches, detail drawings, assembly drawings, and other kinds of working drawings that represent design, planning, and the communication of designs and ideas to others. The Working Drawing Award will be presented alongside the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2024 exhibition in October 2024. We want to explore what a working drawing is today - please join us in exploring this!

Applications for the Working Drawing Award are by online submission only. Up to three drawings may be registered by each applicant for consideration by the Working Drawing Award Selection Panel.

Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2024 Selectors (L-R): Mary Evans, Gary Sangster, Jennifer Scott

Mary Evans is an artist with a national and international reputation. Having studied at Goldsmiths and the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam, Evans’s practice is centred on the social, political, geographical and historical frameworks of Diaspora, migration, global mobility and exchange. This cross-cultural discourse is paralleled by a secondary discourse that links methods of image production, ’fine art’ and ‘craft’, decoration, and ornament. In her practice Evans uses brown kraft paper and other disposable materials to interrogate sites, stories, place and belonging often in the form of large-scale site and research responsive installations in an enquiry that explores the power relationships between Africa and Europe while moving across the real and imagined, mapping the ephemeral and un-mappable. The silhouette, a well-known European visual device is utilised to make the Black body visible as a site for historical and contemporary narratives of resilience, mobility, geography, and memory.Recently appointed as the Director of Fine Art at the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL, Evans was the BA Fine Art course leader at Chelsea College of Arts. As an educator, Evans is invested in challenging barriers to education and widening access to the arts. Evans has taken part in several exhibitions, commissions and residencies in the UK and Internationally including 3rd Guangzhou Triennial, Guangzhou China (2008); Meditations, Baltimore Museum of Art USA (2008); Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship, National Museum of African Art, Washington DC, USA (2010); The Arts & Literary Arts Residency,Rockefeller Foundation, Bellagio Italy (2014); Still the Barbarians EVA International, Limerick Ireland (2016); Lagos Photo, Lagos Nigeria (2018); 11 Biennial Do Mercosul – Porto Alegre, Brazil (2018); Layers - La Banque Arts Centre, Bethune France (2019); Paper Routes:Women to Watch 2020, NMWA USA (2020); Breathe, META Open Arts, London (2022); Gilt, Zeitz MOCCA Cape Town SA (2023); Rites of Passage, Gagosian London (2023) and Windrush Portraits, John Hansard Gallery Southampton 2023.

8th October 2023, 2pm to 4pm: Drawing Session with Jeanette Barnes at Trinity Buoy Wharf
Join artist Jeanette Barnes for this practical drawing session at Trinity Buoy Wharf alongside the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2023.
On Sunday 8 October at 2pm, award-winning artist, Jeanette Barnes, will lead a practical Drawing Session at Trinity Buoy Wharf in London as part of the programme of events accompanying the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2023.

Jeanette Barnes' large drawing, New Battersea Tube Station & Developments, 2023, made with compressed charcoal on paper, is included in the 2023 exhibition. Jeanette won the Working Drawing Award in 2019 and Second Prize in the Jerwood Drawing Prize 2003.

Jeanette says of her drawing: "This work is not about one moment in time, but more a history of the development. On location, I gather information from multiple viewpoints to make the resulting studio drawing slightly uncomfortable. The sketches that fed this image were made over many years, the sense of that evolution had to be accommodated within the final drawing, statements suggested and erased many times over. As much as the work documents the site itself, it also uses the movement of people and the energy of construction as a metaphor for urban experience and change. The development of the drawing isn’t preconceived, it’s much more of a journey of discoveries and losses than a straight line from beginning to end. Buildings jostle and compete for attention and space, as they always have done and always will do. "

Join Jeanette to explore drawing Trinity Buoy Wharf inspired by drawings in the exhibition; the drawing materials for this session will be provided and are included in the ticket price. All levels of experience welcome to join this drawing session.
