Painting – the performance of structures, fragments and use of space within the perceived painted frame, and the relating inherent surround.
In bringing together these artists, through their distinct individual accounts and methodologies, The Performativity of Painting offers opportunity to consider site-specificity, theatrical tropes, depicted surfaces, staging and the interconnectedness of the artwork’s context (in the works’ content and proximity). In this sense, the exhibition will seek to address painting’s embodiment of the performative space.
