Jerwood Drawing Prize 2004

This exhibition, formerly The Cheltenham Open Drawing Competition, has been an annual open show since 1996 and became The Jerwood Drawing Prize in 2001. The aim of the exhibition is to promote and reward talent and excellence in contemporary drawing. The exhibition is currently open to entry by all artists resident or domiciled in the United Kingdom. Every year, the changing panel of distinguished artists, writers, critics, collectors and curators select the show independently and without knowledge of the artists submitting; they define their own priorities for an exhibition of current drawing practice. This fashions a constantly shifting set of values and concerns, evidenced in the resulting touring exhibitions, in which fundamental questions are asked about what drawing is: its purpose, value, relevance and nature.
