Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) presents Keep Your Timber Limber (Works on Paper)

Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) announces Keep Your Timber Limber (Works on Paper) an exhibition on view 19 June–8 September 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, censorship and race. 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.

The exhibition is made possible with support from The ICA Exhibition Supporters Group including Manuela and Iwan Wirth, among others.
