Book Launch: Trip by Laura Braun
London to Lisbon and back, November 2007 – June 2008.
Many photographs have been taken on road trips, pictures of the towns and landscapes passed through without the pretense of a deeper analysis of them; images that tell not so much of the places visited as of the experience of being on the road. ’Trip’ is another collection of impressions of a journey.

Thomas Müller – Touching Relating Dividing (off-site)
Thursday 7 July, 6pm – 9pm

IMT Gallery and The Centre For Recent Drawing are pleased to present the book launch of ‘Touching Relating Dividing’ by Thomas Müller.

‘Touching Relating Dividing’ is a detailed monograph of the German artist Thomas Müller edited by Artist and Director of the Centre For Recent Drawing, Andrew Hewish, as part of the ‘Documents for Recent Drawing’ Monograph series.

Through his drawings Müller investigates the endless possibilities of all kinds of material on paper through a combination of ink, pen, pencil and oil paint, he creates multifaceted sets of drawings, which evoke contrasts and interactions. Another characteristic element is his arrangement of the works, which he installs as incomplete sets that spatialise and infinitely extend the series.

Thomas Müller was born in Germany in 1959. He has exhibited widely throughout Europe, including: Patrick Heide Gallery, London, Gallery Vidal-Saint Phalle, Paris, Fruesorge Contemporary Drawing, Berlin, Gallery Schégl, Zürich and The Centre For Recent Drawing, London. He lives and works in Stuttgart.

The book also includes an essay on drawing by Gordon Shrigley, artist and founder of Marmalade – publishers of visual theory and the transcript of an interview between Thomas Müller, Andrew Hewish and Dominic Rich.

The evening will include a short introduction by Andrew Hewish and a selective reading of his text piece ‘By Dint Of A Coarse Inscription’ by Gordon Shrigley.
