Description

Deanna Petherbridge (Associate Fellow): ‘Drawing without Footnotes’

Deanna Petherbridge discusses her recent pen and ink drawings about the pandemic and the social and political implications of global warming, populist governments, war and forced migration. She investigates issues of visual metaphor and its framing; the infrastructural dynamics of traditional drawing practice in relation to contemporary media and historical practice, and the ironies of self-exegesis and issues of legitimacy.

The Work in Progress seminar explores the variety of subjects studied and researched at the Warburg Institute. Papers are given by invited international scholars, research fellows studying at the Institute, and third-year PhD students.
