New York, NY 10036
Friday, 11th JAN 2013, 7.30pm.
Hunter MFA building, Second floor, 450 W 41st. St, NYC, NY 10036.
Panel moderated by Katy Siegel
With Dana Schutz, Merlin James, Raphael Rubinstein & Richard Shiff
This panel will bring together several prominent critics and painters to examine the condition of painting in its contemporary context. Participants will discuss whether the current plurality in painting dilutes meaning, or if it is just a case of many people doing many interesting things. How do we advance meaning given the plethora of dispersed, diverse, yet all seemingly functional approaches? Is the basic idea of advancement even a useful paradigm anymore? These issues will be explored with the aim of presenting a more critical dialogue about work made with paint.
