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.
