Interview with Deanna Petherbridge


Interview: Deanna Petherbridge

Deanna Petherbridge

Whitworth Art Gallery

2 December 2016 – 4 June 2017

With a retrospective exhibition, showing pen and ink drawings from
across a 45-year career, currently on show at the Whitworth Gallery in

Africa) is certainly having a moment. Recently returned from India, and already

London, to discuss the value and democracy of drawing, a medium she has
championed throughout her career.
