Disappear Here: Deanna Petherbridge in conversation with Sam Jacob

Bringing together material from the RIBA and Drawing Matter collections, the exhibition Disappear Here (RIBA, 2 May – 7 Oct 2018) explores the history, application and implications of perspective, how it spans truth and illusion, linking the disciplines of art, architecture and mathematics. In this podcast series, curator and designer Sam Jacob discusses with various guests the exhibition’s material and themes.

The second episode sees Sam joined by Deanna Petherbridge, artist, curator and author of The Primacy of Drawing (Yale University Press).
