Works on paper by Ian Davenport go on display in Devon

A new exhibition of works on paper by Ian Davenport has opened at The Burton at Bideford, Devon, running until 3 November. 
This exhibition showcases Ian Davenport’s works on paper from his time at Goldsmiths College to present day and many of the works have never been displayed together before. A new illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition, the first to be narrated by the artist himself.

Ian Davenport studied at both Northwich College of Art and Design and Goldsmiths College, where he graduated in 1988. He was one of the generation of Young British Artists who participated in the seminal 1988 exhibition, Freeze, organized by Damien Hirst.

Only two years after graduating, he held his first solo show at the Waddington Galleries, London. In 1991, he was nominated for the Turner Prize and remains the youngest ever nominee for the prize, and in 1999 he won an award in the John Moores Exhibition, Liverpool.

He has exhibited extensively all over the world and his work is held in important museum collections including: Arts Council of Great Britain; Tate in London; Centre Pompidou in Paris; Museum of Modern Art in New York; and the Dallas Museum of Art in Texas.
