Montserrat College of Art Galleries has invited seven artists to draw directly onto the seven walls of Montserrat Gallery over the course of seven weeks. Highlighting the ways the artists’ bodies and gestures activate the gallery space, this project celebrates the performative aspects of drawing and the individual nature of each artist’s process. SEVEN challenges traditional definitions of drawing, inviting artists of to mark-make in a variety of disciplines including performance, video and textile.

The gallery will act as an open studio over the course of each artist’s week-long residency, students and guests are welcome to come in.
