Time Out says

Think 'British Museum collection' and you're probably thinking some variation of 'really, really old stuff'. But as it happens, this behemoth of a museum actually has a fair amount of recent and contemporary art works squirrelled away as well. This free exhibition, which tours the UK after its stint in Holborn, focuses on drawings by artists working between 1970 and today. Big names include Grayson Perry, Tracey Emin and Anish Kapoor, and there's an overarching focus on how artists have put pen (or pencil) to paper in order to critique governments and systems.
