Painting Without Paint
What makes a painting a painting? Paint? Canvas? A frame?
This show presents works by 22 international artists that look and act like paintings.
They are paintings, without paint. There are works made of mercury, t-shirts, shampoo, flies, tar and
feathers, condensation, fabric, mirrors, salt, vegetable dye, broken glass, aluminium, chemicals,
newspaper, 24-carat gold, fabric, pills, emergency blankets, wood, broken glass ... but no paint.
The show asks what defines a painting? All of these things make paintings, but how? Where are the
boundaries and what do we think the rules are?
The gallery will be closed for the holidays from December 21 - January 9.
