In the last few years various artists  have stepped back to study painting in depth as an expressive means, with all the possible alternative approaches to this medium. They see in painting a possibility of emancipation from actual working conditions. Working conditions that are ever more specified by the accelerated and market driven situation in the exhibition business.

The group show ‘exhibition paintings’ gathers the works of six international artists, who recognize the potential of painting in order to rethink the exhibition format, to illuminate the relationships between curator, artist and the public – and in particular  to show an alternative to the contemporary situation.

While Charles Avery, Paolo Chiasera and Martin Pohl use painting to conceive new exhibitions (or have them curated by someone else) that only take place on canvas, Dorothy Miller, Lea von Wintzingerode and Amelie von Wulffen investigate in their works the delicate mechanisms and relations between the artist and their audience. undefinedmore...
