Los Angeles – This winter the Hammer Museum presents a
retrospective of drawings by

Rachel Whiteread , the first large-scale museum survey of work on
paper by the British

artist. Organized by
Allegra
Pesenti
, curator of the
Grunwald Center for the Graphic

Arts, this exhibition includes key examples of the
artist’s sculpture displayed alongside

her drawings. The exhibition features 155
drawings, 8 sculptures, and a vitrine filled
with roughly 200 objects selected by Whiteread. Although her
sculpture is well-known
and widely published, Whiteread’s work on paper has remained
largely behind the
scenes until now. On view January 31 through 25 April,
2010.
