The Open Air Drawing Room is an example of socially engaged art practice. The work crosses boundaries between performance and painting. Conceived as a celebration of the collective effort through a combination of performance and painting, The Open Air Drawing Room was originally co-commissioned by the Turner Contemporary (www.turnercontemporary.org) in Margate and Applause Rural Touring (www.applause.org.uk).
Many of the hundreds of contributors to this work were members of the public who participated in Eric Maclennan's performance at the 2020 Greenwich + Docklands International Festival.
The exhibition takes place at Stephen Lawrence Gallery which is a self-contained, dedicated exhibition space in the thriving Greenwich arts scene and is a window on the creative life of the University’s new academic building in Stockwell Street, which houses subject specialisms in architecture, digital arts and design.
