A Bigger Splash: Painting after Performance Panel Discussion

Wiktor Gutt Grand Conversation 1972 - ... © Wiktor Gutt

This panel discussion draws on the debates around the relationship between painting and performance raised by Tate's current major exhibition A Bigger Splash: Painting after Performance. Opening with Jackson Pollock and David Hockney, it approaches how new art practices led to an expansion of how we understand not just painting and performance but art itself. Catherine Wood, Tate curator of Contemporary Art and Performance, will be joined by artists Stuart Brisley and Paulina Olowska, and Magnus af Petersens, Chief Curator at Whitechapel Art Gallery and previously curator of the exhibition Explosion! Painting as Action at Moderna Museet, Stockholm, and Fundacio Miro, Barcelona. The discussion will be chaired by art historian, critic and writer Anna Dezeuze.
