This course takes you out of your studio and gives you a couple of useful concepts for understanding and performing painting based on knowledge from the French and New York School painting traditions. We will examine the position of painting today and try out different painting methods such as all-overness, form weaving, hot and cold, the dialectics of surface and depth, reality and illusion, perspective, and more.This is a practical workshop. We learn to mix pigments, build a stretcher and stretch a canvas and prime it. We try out how to "hybridize your tools in order to build unique things. This is also a theoretical workshop. Together we examine the theory and history of this discipline and examine what painting is after the invention and ruptures of photography up to current avant-garde of mainly black, third world, queer, and feminist painters. We will examine new possibilities for painting and how "New Materiality" has made this new field explode today.
