‘Mixing It Up: Painting Today’ brings together 31 painters whose works combine elements from varied traditions, genres, image sources and formal approaches.
Exploiting their medium’s potential for ambiguity and for creating correspondences between seemingly unrelated elements, these artists make the case that painting may be the most relevant ‘technology’ for exploring our complex, image-saturated present.
This publication features an essay by Ralph Rugoff and original texts by Jeremy Atherton Lin, Martha Barratt, Ben Eastham, Emily LaBarge, Rosanna Mclaughlin, Rianna Jade Parker and Attillah Springer.
Artists include – Hurvin Anderson, Alvaro Barrington, Peter Doig, Lubaina Himid, Rachel Jones, Allison Katz, Matthew Krishanu, Oscar Murillo, and Sophie von Hellermann, among others.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition, ‘Mixing It Up: Painting Today’ at Hayward Gallery, London (9 September – 12 December 2021).
