Immediacy of Paint: Surface is a one day event focused on questioning how artists are currently exploring surface and the materiality of painting in the digital age. This is the second symposium in the Immediacy of Paint series to be held at The University of Suffolk to include talks and a panel discussion presented by artists and academics. By bringing together artists, academics and art students whose practice focus is on painting in the contemporary moment, the symposium explores the immediacy of paint
The topic of surface and painting is broad and with that in mind the aim is to present a variety of perspectives. This series looks to provide a platform for bringing together networks to further the dialogue surrounding painting today.
• How does pigment compare to a pixel when thinking about surface?
• Is it important to define or separate surfaces created from either paint or a digital image?
• How are artists mediating surface with the current technologies?
There are many internationally recognised artists living in the East of England or those with links to the region whose main practice is painting. This resource establishes a platform for bringing together networks to further the dialogue surrounding painting today.
The event is presented in association with The University of Suffolk
