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.
Moderated by Anthony Huberman and Daniel Bozhkov
With Nicolas Bourriaud, David Levi Strauss, and Simon Critchley
This panel brings together several prominent critics and educators for a discussion. How do current artistic, curatorial and educational models re-examine the ways art and education could function together? Have the conditions that once allowed for risk and experimentation within the temporary autonomous zone of the educational institution been changed? What does risk look like now? How can thinkers, artists and curators create these conditions in and outside the institution? The conversation will expand upon the existing structures, the utopian models, and the actual possibilities. Our hope is to touch upon the broader issues of how art can or should be taught, and what the artist can teach given the conditions of the world today.
