This BBC documentary follows three artists as they prepared to show their work in the Diaspora Pavilion in Venice earlier this year. The programme includes our very own Birmingham-based Barbara Walker, as well as a fitting and moving tribute to Khadija Saye.

Barbara Walker, an artist based in Birmingham, has been selected as one of the exhibitors in the Jerwood Drawing Prize, opening at Jerwood Visual Arts’ Jerwood Space on 13 September 2017. Known for her highly detailed studies of the human figure nuanced by social and political issues, Walker’s work Exotic Detail in Margin will be shown in the group exhibition.

The Jerwood Drawing Prize champions excellence within contemporary drawing practice from a range of UK-based artists. There are four cash prizes available for the artists showing. A new prize – The Evelyn Williams Drawing Award, worth £10,000 – will support an individual artist with a significant track record to develop and realise a body of drawings for a new solo exhibition.

The exhibition will run at Jerwood Space until 22 October 2017, before touring to East Gallery in Norwich, The Edge at Bath University, Sidney Cooper Gallery in Christchurch and Vane Gallery in Newcastle.
