Friday, October 30
9:30 am – 6:00 pm

Painting and its Humors, a symposium is a day-long fling intended to let fresh air back into art after the much ballyhooed “Death of Painting.”

The symposium examines painting as a site of theoretical improvisation and artistic slapstick in an effort to create alternate itineraries for thinking about what a work is, what artists do, and aesthetic experience.

1:00pm-3:00pm (Logan Center, Room 203, 915 E. 60th Street); Jessica Campbell, Vitaly Komar, Michael Portnoy, David Robbins; moderated by Jacob Proctor
