This exhibition will take a new look at the dynamic relationship between performance and painting since 1950. Contrasting key paintings by Jackson Pollock and David Hockney\, the exhibitio n considers two different approaches to the idea of the canvas as an arena in which to act: one gestural\, the other one theatrical. The paintings of the Vienna Actionists or the Shooting Pictures of Niki de St Phalle will be re-presented within the performance context that they were made\, and juxtaposed with works by artists such as Cind y Sherman or Jack Smith that used the face and bo dy as a surface\, often using make-up in work dealing with gender role-play . The exhibition proposes a new way of looking at the work of a number of y ounger artists whose approach to painting is energised by these diverse his torical sources\, drawing upon action painting\, drag and the idea of the s tage set.
