While it can be argued that all contemporary painting is functioning post-conceptually, formalism remains a visual-language through which artists continue to think and make. Painting discourse and the art-market have often associated the latter phenomenon with the continued stylistic revival of modernism, or the cyclical ‘death of painting'.
This panel seeks to interrogate the discipline of painting by considering how contemporary practitioners navigate post-conceptualism alongside materially-led studio practices in and outside the art academy. This panel, comprising practicing artists and art-educators, will discuss how they navigate both post-conceptualism and formalism within their pedagogy and practice.
