AboutPainting In Conversation:
An International Exhibition of Paintings Made by Artists on Chelsea's MA in Fine Art
Chelsea's MAFA is comprised of an international body of artists who have all brought with them their unique cultural, political, and art making values influenced by their respective homes. This exhibition addresses the opportunities, unanticipated changes in trajectory, and even difficulties that have come about as a result of the shared intimate environment in the studio spaces with colleagues from all over the globe. Indeed, the conversations we have in our studios each day-- about painting history, our work, our lives and insights on the world--are proving to be influential for us and this exhibition showcases paintings that have been realized in this context. The works in this exhibition are a visual manifestation of our ongoing critical dialog with one another, spoken by manifold painters in manifold tongues.
