Since the 1960s, Deanna Petherbridge’s practice has moved between making drawings and writing critically about art and architecture. She has designed murals and stage-sets, curated exhibitions, taught in the studio and lectured internationally – a career trajectory that has anticipated the multiple practices of younger conceptual artists. Drawing is her primary concern – both as an artist and as a historian of practice. This new monograph, published to coincide with a major retrospective at the Whitworth Art Gallery, celebrates the vitality and originality of an extraordinary body of work.
