School of Visual Arts (SVA) presents “Between Picture and Viewer: The Image in Contemporary Painting,” an exhibition of recent work by 19 established and emerging New York artists examining the relationship between contemporary painting and the notion of “the image” in today’s increasingly hyper-visual culture. Curated by Tom Huhn, chair of the BFA Visual and Critical Studies Department at SVA, and faculty member Isabel Taube, the exhibition is the result of a collaboration between Huhn, a philosopher, and Taube, an art historian. Rejecting the claim that the traditional image is now obsolete, Huhn and Taube point to a renewed interest and relevance in painting, one that makes a compelling argument for the materiality of art at the current moment, despite a preponderance of ephemeral and performance-based works in contemporary art practice.  Click here for more information.
