ICA - "Keep Your Timber Limber" private view


June 2013

Keep Your Timber Limber (Works on Paper) explores how artists since the 1940s to the present day have used drawing to address ideas critical and current to their time, ranging from the politics of gender and sexuality, to feminist issues, war and censorship. Stretching from fashion to erotica, the works can all be viewed as being in some way transgressive, employing traditional and commercial drawing techniques to challenge specific social, political or stylistic conventions.

The  exhibition brings together the work of eight artists: Judith Bernstein,  Tom of Finland, George Grosz, Margaret Harrison, Mike Kuchar, Cary  Kwok, Antonio Lopez and Marlene McCarty.
