Painting in time at The Tetley

3 APRIL - 5 JULY 2015


Given my interest in artists that work across disciplines and question the notion of medium specificity, this is definitely an exhibition I want to visit.

Exhibiting artists include Polly Apfelbaum, Claire Ashley, Kate Hawkins, Robert Chase Heishman and Megan Schvaneveldt, Natasha Kidd, Rob Leech, Lisa Milroy, Yoko Ono, Hayley Tompkins, Jessica Warboys and Sarah Kate Wilson.

This group show brings together an exciting array of works by international artists practicing within the expanding field of painting. Exploding ideas of what painting can be, these artists work across sculpture, performance, painting and film. The exhibition includes inflatable paintings, painting machines and paintings that can be handled and reassembled by visitors.

Painting in Time consists of works that are in a state of flux: pieces will constantly evolve and in some cases only exist for the lifespan of the exhibition. New commissions sit alongside existing works reconfigured for The Tetley’s unique gallery spaces.

This exhibition acknowledges the enduring popularity of the medium and asks ‘what constitutes painting today?’

A symposium, which focuses on painting and its relationship with time, will take place at The Tetley on 4 July 2015.
