Tomorrow night, Peckham’s 139 Copeland Road will become temporary home to Drawing A Blank, a four day exhibition curated by Ben Broome. Drawing A Blank presents the work of 11 London-based artists with very different practises, from to point and shoot photography of Frank Lebon to the scratchy illustrations of King Krule cover artist Jack Marshall, with sculpture, paper cuts, paintings, illustrations and film all featuring.
The “semi-derelict” building will provide some very not-white walls for the collection of artists to hang their varied works. “I’m not the biggest fan of white wall galleries, and it suited my mentality,” Ben explains. “It’s a little rough round the edges.”
Hazy pop band Babeheaven and poet James Massiah will perform on the opening night.
