Tracing the Century, presented at Tate Liverpool this autumn, highlights drawing’s fundamental role as a catalyst and vehicle for change in modern and contemporary art. The exhibition includes around one hundred artworks from the Tate Collection together with key loans by artists such as Sara Barker, Leon Golub, Jasper Johns, Matthew Monahan, Nancy Spero, Richard Tuttle and Hannah Wilke. Programmed in parallel with Tracing the Century, a new commission by Matt Saunders in the Wolfson Gallery will look at new drawing practices.
Tracing the Century has at its heart artworks based on the human body and the inner self, opening up the conversation between figuration and abstraction that characterised art in the twentieth century.
