At a time when artists may work without obligation to medium, why choose the materials of painting? What does it mean for an artist to assume the role of painter today? And just what is at stake for a new generation committed to painting?
This exhibition presents new work by 15 artists from the US and Europe in a focused survey of some emergent developments in abstract painting and studio practice. With an expanded series of public programs, it also considers the ever-shifting role of the painter in contemporary art and culture, which remains as fluid as the medium itself.
For the participating artists, painting is a means, not an end—a generative process rooted in the studio yet open and receptive to the world.
