A choreographed meeting.

Painting – the performance of structures, fragments and use of space within the perceived painted frame, and the relating inherent surround.


Artists: Tobias Buckel, Liz Elton, David Lock, J.A. Nicholls, Selma Parlour,
James Pimperton, Rebecca Molloy, Alex Roberts

In bringing together these artists, through their distinct individual accounts and methodologies, the exhibition, The Performativity of Painting offers the opportunity to consider site-specificity, theatrical tropes, depicted surfaces, staging and the interconnectedness of the artwork’s context (in the works’ content and proximity). In this sense, the exhibition will seek to address painting’s embodiment of the performative space.  Curator: Alex Roberts
