Participants of the Frascari Symposium are warmly invited to lunch at Drawing Matter’s home in Somerset.

In the archive, guests will have an opportunity to examine in the original a few of the drawings shown at the symposium, and Matthew Wells (Kingston University) will discuss his use of the collection related to his current research. 

An exhibition throughout the valley will present models by the students of Kingston Unit 6, who each translated drawings of building fragments from the Drawing Matter collection into full-scale building elements. 

Guests are also invited to visit Unconscious Landscape. Works from the Ursula Hauser Collection, an exhibition at nearby Hauser & Wirth Somerset (a shuttle will run between Shatwell and the gallery throughout the day).

Please RSVP to Mary Johnson by Friday 13 June, and please also make her aware of any food allergies.

Please also wear robust shoes and prepare for rain!
