Alison Wilding: Art School Drawings from the 1960s and 70s

9 June–29 July 2011
Karsten Schubert, 5–8 Lower John Street

Karsten Schubert presents an exhibition of 12 drawings from Alison Wilding's art school years during the 1960s and early 1970s.


The first nine works on display – collectively referred to as the 'Ethos of the Petrol Station' drawings – were a response to a project during the artist's time at Nottingham College of Art, Nottingham. The final 3 works in the catalogue are from the artist's time at the Royal College of Art, London, and were used as a tool for documenting and furthering her finished sculpture. The drawings provide a glimpse into Wilding's progress in the studio during that time and their connection to both drawings and sculptures made almost 40 years later.
