Mireille Eagan, Curator of Contemporary Art takes us on a walking tour of the exhibition, RAE PERLIN: WHATEVER I WANTED WAS OUT THERE, IN THE WORLD, SOMEWHERE

Rae Perlin viewed drawing as a verb rather than a noun. For her, drawing was a way to understand the world by existing in the flow of it. She wanted to capture the feeling of something in the moment rather than create a replica. For Perlin, process was much more important than the result.

While focused on Perlin, this exhibition also places her in conversation with various artists who worked alongside her, were influenced by her way of life and whose works echo Perlin’s own approach.

The exhibition raises questions about what we value. It is a chance to reflect upon what we believe art should be, what we think artists should do and what we consider worth keeping.
