Thursday 3 April
Modern One
Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art
5.30 – 6.45pm

Artist Zoë Fothergill, winner of this year’s John Watson Prize will lead this exciting session based on her current show at Modern 1 ‘Fur, Bizmuth & Spiny Oyster’. These three new pieces are based on her research into the internet phenomenon Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR).

Tonight we invite participants to explore sensory perception and ASMR – tingling in response to triggers and to become ASMRtists for the evening!

The Drawing Room is an artist led drawing event, held monthly at the Gallery of Modern Art. It offers participants a unique, opportunity to explore the range of possibilities in contemporary drawing practice, whilst experimenting with processes and materials, both conventional and unconventional.
