Lois Dodd discusses contemporary painting at the Cooper Union alongside Philip Taaffe and Thomas Nozkowski

“The painters Lois Dodd A'48, Thomas Nozkowski A'67, Philip Taaffe A'77 discuss the state and shape of contemporary painting with critics Barry Schwabsky, Faye Hirsch, and John Yau in a free, public event.

How far have artists extended the boundaries of the medium in the 21st century, and what does it mean to be identified as a painter today? Is the word ‘painting’ still adequate to describe a practice which no longer necessarily involves paint or flat surfaces? And to what extent do the ways in which we write about painting influence both the public’s reception of the work and contemporary practice itself?

This event launches the new Lund Humphries Contemporary Painters series of monographs. Following the panel discussion the artists and writers will be signing copies of their new books.”
