Museum of Modern Art Oxford – David Haines
Museum of Modern Art Oxford received a Grant International Presentations for the participation of David Haines in the group exhibition A Slice Through the World: Contemporary Artists’ Drawings, from 13 June until 5 August 2018. The exhibition is a collaboration between the museum and Drawing Room in London and shows an extensive range of drawings by international artists who question the status of the drawing with their work. David Haines is one of five artists whose work is shown at both locations.
The exhibition at Modern Art Oxford brings together a dynamic selection of recent works by 14 international artists who are committed to the materiality of paper and pencil, showcasing a remarkable attention to detail and skill. In an age of mass media, where the rapid proliferation of images leaves many on the verge of digital exhaustion, A Slice through the World explores the power of traditional drawing to make us slow down and reconsider how we look at the world.
The featured artists across the two-venue group exhibition are ruby onyinyechi amanze, Nidhal Chamekh, Milano Chow, Kate Davis, Karl Haendel, David Haines, Ian Kiaer, Ciprian Muresan, David Musgrave, Wura-Natasha Ogunji, Kathy Prendergast, Massinissa Selmani, Lucy Skaer and Barbara Walker.
