“Selecting the work for this show is something quite different to anything I have done before” says Lucy Byatt, Director of Hospitalfield. “We are presented with so many entries and with no information about the artists.

It is abundantly evident that drawing continues to be an exciting and vital medium in contemporary artistic practice.”
