Stop Painting / Start Painting or My Crisis Is Not Your Crisis

Painting in Europe and North America, 1965-1975 and Now


In this lecture, Mark Godfrey discusses various reasons why painting was perceived to be 'in crisis' between 1965 to 1975, and then asks what it means that this belief in a crisis of painting was shared mainly by white male painters. How did others view painting at the very same time? He then considers painting today through the lens of these questions.


Dr. Mark Godfrey is Senior Curator, International Art at Tate Modern, where he has curated and co-curated retrospectives of Sigmar Polke, Franz  West, Gerhard Richter, Alighiero Boetti, Richard Hamilton and others, as well as 'Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power'. He is currently working on a Philip Guston retrospective and a project with Anicka Yi.


The lecture will take place live on YouTube in English (set reminder).


Moderation: Dr. Monika Bayer-Wermuth, Curator at Museum Brandhorst
