Yve-Alain Bois’ seminal text Painting as Model, published in 1993, is still cited as being an extremely important collection of essays that looks at painting as being both a conceptual and a material enquiry. Bois believes that one must concentrate on both the formal elements of a work of art and its physical qualities to fully understand its totality.
The symposium is free and open to all. Booking Essential.
