Painting: Funny Peculiar contains the transcripts and edited papers from the symposium ‘Funny Peculiar’, which took place at Manchester School of Art, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK (summer 2019).
The event explored ideas in contemporary painting connected to shape, humour and diagrammatic thought.
Speakers included Amy Sillman, Fionna Barber, Melissa Gordon, and Robert Garnett. The event was moderated by Magnus Quaife and chaired by Andrew Hunt.
This book is part of the ‘Slimvolume Synthesis’ series, a sequence of publications that includes texts by artists, critics, curators, poets and theorists to produce new creative disjunctions between art and writing.
