Follow the British Museum's contemporary paper trail

If you missed the recent exhibition Pushing paper: contemporary drawing from 1970 to now at the British Museum, you may well catch it as it tours the country with the support of the Bridget Riley Art Foundation. The exhibition explores the scope and diversity of contemporary drawing through works by artists including David Hockney, Rachel Whiteread, Sol LeWitt, Anish Kapoor, Tracey Emin and Grayson Perry, as well as exciting works by emerging artists like Hamid Sulaiman and Rachel Duckhouse. On tour, each venue will embed works from their own collection, creating a new iteration of the exhibition.

First stop is the Oriental Museum, Durham (29 February–17 May 2020); then Pier Arts Centre, Stromness, Orkney (13 June–5 September 2020); Glynn Vivian Art Gallery Swansea (19 September–29 November 2020); and finally Cooper Gallery, Barnsley (9 December–6 March 2021.

The catalogue, edited by Isabel Seligman with a fine drawing by Richard Deacon on the cover, is still available (Thames & Hudson, £18.95).
