A day after the opening, David Joselit, co-curator of Painting 2.0 and Distinguished Professor at the CUNY Graduate Center in New York, will be hosting a conversation between experts. Joined by international guests, he will take Painting 2.0 as the springboard for an investigation into painting and its specific forms of expression in the information society.
Joining him in the discussion are Branden W. Joseph, the Frank Gallipoli Professor of Modern and Contemporary Art at Columbia University in New York, Michelle Kuo, editor-in-chief of the prestigious American art magazine Artforum, and Kerstin Stakemeier, Professor of Art Theory and Art Education at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Nuremberg. The speakers have all devoted themselves in their work to studying painting since the 1960s. Together they will discuss the relevance of painting in a society permeated and shaped by the media.
The event is the first in a series of lectures, panel discussions, and performances to be held in spring 2016, tackling the three underlying themes of the exhibition: 'Gesture and spectacle', 'Eccentric figuration', and 'Social networks'.
