In response to recent developments in pictorial practice and critical discourse, 'Painting beyond itself' seeks to historicize and propose new approaches to the question of the medium. Reaching back to the earliest theoretical and institutional definition of painting as a medium in the Renaissance and eighteenth century, this book, based on two conferences (one at Harvard University and the other in Berlin), focuses on the changing role of the medium in establishing painting as the privileged practice, discourse, and institution of modernity.

Painting has demonstrated remarkable perseverance in the expanding field of contemporary art and the surrounding ecology of media images. It appears, however, to have dispelled its own once-uncontested material basis: no longer confined to being synonymous with a flat picture plane hung on the wall, today, painting instead tends to emphasize the apparatus of its appearance and the conduits of its circulation. With contributions by Peter Geimer, Isabelle Graw, and André Rottmann, 'Thinking through Painting' investigates painting's traits and reception in cultural and socioeconomic discourse.

Examining the resurgent interest in painting and the proliferation of new digital media in recent years, this generously illustrated book delineates painting's complex relationship with information technology. In a survey that begins in the mid-twentieth century, long before the birth of the Internet, this book traces painting's capacity to digest and transform other media, even as its own legitimacy has been questioned. Featuring the work of numerous renowned artists, from Sigmar Polke to Nicole Eisenman and from Cy Twombly to Amy Sillman, the book examines how painting has addressed digital technology as it relates to human experience and perception, and includes three in-depth essays and additional texts by influential thinkers from the field. Comprehensive and lavishly illustrated, the book presents a wide range of works that reconsider the assumed opposition of the digital and the analog, the human and the technological, arguing that painting has served as a means to represent--and even enact--new media. This book affirms the ongoing vitality of the medium of painting in the midst of a digital world.

Originally written for an exhibition Jean-Luc Nancy curated at the Museum of Fine Arts in Lyon in 2007, this book addresses the medium of drawing in light of the question of form--of form in its formation, as a formative force, as a birth to form. In this sense, drawing opens less toward its achievement, intention, and accomplishment than toward a finality without end and the infinite renewal of ends, toward lines of sense marked by tracings, suspensions, and permanent interruptions. Recalling that drawing and design were once used interchangeably, Nancy notes that "drawing" designates a design that remains without project, plan, or intention. His argument offers a way of rethinking a number of historical terms (sketch, draft, outline, plan, mark, notation), which includes rethinking drawing in its graphic, filmic, choreographic, poetic, melodic, and rhythmic sense. If drawing is not reducible to any form of closure, it never resolves a tension specific to drawing but allows the pleasure of drawing to come into appearance, which is also the pleasure in drawing, the gesture of a desire that remains in excess of all knowledge. Situating drawing in these terms, Nancy engages a number of texts in which Freud addresses the force of desire in the rapport between aesthetic and sexual pleasure, texts that also turn around the same questions concerning form in its formation, form as a formative force. Between the sections of the text, Nancy has placed a series of "sketchbooks" on drawing, composed of a broad range of quotations on art from different writers, artists, or philosophers.

Many contemporary artworks evoke the human figure: consider the omnipresence of the mannequin in current installations of artists like John Miller, Thomas Hirschhorn, Heimo Zobernig, or David Lieske. Or consider the revival of a minimalist vocabulary, which embraces anthropomorphism as in the works of Isa Genzken and Rachel Harrison. This book brings together contributions from the eponymous conference, all of which seek to speculate on the reasons as to why, since the turn of the millennium, we have encountered so many artworks that tend to reconcile Minimalism with suggestions of the human figure. It proposes that this new artistic convention becomes rather questionable when discussed in the light of Franco Berardi's theory of semiocapitalism-a power technology that aims squarely at our human resources. The participants of this conference were asked to offer possible explanations for this wide acceptance of anthropomorphism could it be that this is a manifestation of the increasingly desperate desire for art to have agency?

Timeless Painting presents the work of 17 contemporary painters whose works reflect a singular approach that is peculiarly of our time: they are a-temporal, a term coined by William Gibson and Bruce Sterling, the originators of the cyberpunk aesthetic. A-temporality or timelessness manifests itself in painting as an ahistoric free-for-all, where contemporaneity as an indicator of new form is nowhere to be found, and all eras co-exist. Published to accompany an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art that explores the impact of this cultural condition on contemporary painting, this publication features work by an international roster of artists including Joe Bradley, Kerstin Brätsch, Matt Connors, Nicole Eisenman, Mark Grotjahn, Charline von Heyl, , Julie Mehretu, Oscar Murillo, Laura Owens and Josh Smith, among others. An overview essay by curator Laura Hoptman is divided into thematic chapters that explore topics such as re-animation and reenactment, recontextualization, Zombie painting, and the concomitant Frankenstein approach, which describes a process of stitching together pieces of the history of painting to create a work of art that would be dead but for its juxtaposed parts, all working in association with one another to propel the work into life.

What is the function of art in the era of digital globalization? How can one think of art institutions in an age defined by planetary civil war, growing inequality, and proprietary digital technology? The boundaries of such institutions have grown fuzzy. They extend from a region where the audience is pumped for tweets to a future of “neurocurating,” in which paintings surveil their audience via facial recognition and eye tracking to assess their popularity and to scan for suspicious activity. In Duty Free Art, filmmaker and writer Hito Steyerl wonders how we can appreciate, or even make art, in the present age. What can we do when arms manufacturers sponsor museums, and some of the world’s most valuable artworks are used as currency in a global futures market detached from productive work? Can we distinguish between information, fake news, and the digital white noise that bombards our everyday lives? Exploring subjects as diverse as video games, WikiLeaks files, the proliferation of freeports, and political actions, she exposes the paradoxes within globalization, political economies, visual culture, and the status of art production.

Accompanying a major museum retrospective of the acclaimed American painter, this book traces Amy Sillman's diverse body of work that includes drawings, cartoons, paintings, and animated videos produced on an iPhone. From her early small-scale cartoon figures to her later enormous abstract paintings, Amy Sillman's artistic vision shines through in this beautiful volume that covers the period from 1995 to the present. Filled with drawings, paintings, and 'zines, as well as stills from the artist's recent forays into animated films, the book traces the development of Sillman's work from her early use of cartoon figures and a vivacious palette through her exploration of the diagrammatic line, the history of Abstract Expressionism.0Exhibition: Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, USA (4.10.2013-5.1.2014) / Aspen Art Museum, Colorado, USA (13.2.-11.5.2014) / Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College, New York, USA (28.6.-21.9.2014).

Thinking Through Painting' is an on-going investigation of contemporary painting since 2009 involving numerous discussions and studio visits. The book was initiated after a discussion between Swedish artist Jan Rydén and curator Jonatan Habib Engqvist about how the contemporary institutional and theoretical art scene often seems to be uneasy, and at times even lost in its relationship to painting. Together with the artists Kristina Bength and Sigrid Sandström, they embarked on a project that would investigate painting as a way of thinking with a group composed of a curator/philosopher and three theoretically minded painters who all have different points of departure and dissimilar painting practices. Taking the artist's perspective as a point of departure, the book collects over 400 pages of commissioned texts and transcribed conversations between artists, theorists, curators and critics active in Stockholm, Oslo and New York.

The ways in which painting is taught within art schools and academies has, in recent years, undergone several significant changes. As the barriers between media eroded into more fluid borders, art schools have responded by adapting and evolving. Many painting departments have been absorbed into general Fine Art courses but specialist painting courses and pathways still continue to be developed. How have these courses defined and redefined themselves to reflect the current artistic landscape and how can painting maintain an identity within non-specialist approaches? Teaching Painting addresses the historical, theoretical, pedagogical and continually shifting methods of how the medium is taught. It asks how and why approaches to teaching painting have changed and developed and offers a platform through which practices and experience can be shared. The book includes introductions from Ian Hartshorne, Magnus Quaife and Donald Moloney, and contributions from Maggie Ayliffe and Christian Mieves, Gordon Brennan, Janna Erkkila, Ian Gonczarow, Sarah Horton and Sarah Longworth-West, Sean Kaye, John McClenaghan, Dougal McKenzie, Alistair Payne, Craig Staff, Daniel Sturgis, Sarah Taylor, Joseph Wright and Stuart MacKenzie.

Jean Hélion, the French painter who died at eighty-three in 1987, brought together in his copious and essential writing on art the theoretical authority of the intellectual and the fundamental insights of the craftsman in his studio. His writing extended throughout the five decades or more of his career. Soon after the young painter’s arrival in Paris from the provinces, he began a literary-art magazine; he wrote polemical articles as a leading avant-garde abstractionist; he wrote about the great tradition of figure painting while still painting abstractions; and he wrote journals, notes on studio practice, pieces about the role of the artist in society, and much more. His prolificacy is made more extraordinary because he wrote in two languages—having lived in the United States for some years, he wrote many of his articles in English for an American and British audience. This volume collects, for the first time, the diverse writings by Hélion that appeared in print originally in English, including “The Abstract Artist in Society,” “Poussin, Seurat, and Double Rhythm,” “Objects for a Painter,” and many more. Double Rhythm is sure to become essential reading for art historians and painters.

Colour and Abstraction looks at how colour was liberated from its subservient role to drawing in developing pictorial space, and how - with traditional roles broken - abstraction was born, allowing a more vibrant use of colour. As a practical book, it explores how paint can determine the colour and drawing within a painting, especially in relation to how expressive, cool, gestural, tactile or intense the work will be. This, in turn, can determine the kind of pictorial space that the artist uses, moving both toward and away from depiction. This new book encourages you to understand how colour relates to abstraction, and create a method of painting that challenges and advances your own style. The book examines how with new freedom of expression artists can focus on the 'feeling' of the work; emphasizes the importance of unpredictable, rather than tasteful, discovery; and explains the use of colour space, mark making, and the three pictorial dynamics of tone, intensity and space. Examples are discussed to reveal the thought-processes behind abstract art, and exercises encourage artists to develop their own making style through 'purposeful play'. Aimed at students of all levels aspiring to understand the roles of colour and abstraction and beautifully illustrated with 194 colour images.

“If John Berger’s Ways of Seeing is a classic of art criticism, looking at the ‘what’ of art, then David Salle’s How to See is the artist’s reply, a brilliant series of reflections on how artists think when they make their work. The ‘how’ of art has perhaps never been better explored.” —Salman Rushdie How does art work? How does it move us, inform us, challenge us? Internationally renowned painter David Salle’s incisive essay collection illuminates these questions by exploring the work of influential twentieth-century artists. Engaging with a wide range of Salle’s friends and contemporaries—from painters to conceptual artists such as Jeff Koons, John Baldessari, Roy Lichtenstein, and Alex Katz, among others—How to See explores not only the multilayered personalities of the artists themselves but also the distinctive character of their oeuvres. Salle writes with humor and verve, replacing the jargon of art theory with precise and evocative descriptions that help the reader develop a personal and intuitive engagement with art. The result: a master class on how to see with an artist’s eye.

Compiled for the first time here, essays by American critic, artist, gallerist and dealer John Kelsey convey some of the most poignant challenges in the art world and in the many social roles it creates. "When the critic chooses to become a smuggler, a hack, a cook, or an artist," Kelsey said, "it's maybe because criticism as such remains tied to an outmoded social relation." Kelsey's "rich texts" play the double role of explaining the art world and actively participating in it; they close the distance between the work of art and how we talk about it. These playful, elegant writings - many originally published in Artforum - embody a timelessness that strikes at the core of the contemporary art world. The newest edition from the terrific Institut fur Kunstkritik series.
