Suspicious Minds: Collaborative Painting Experiments
5 – 8 April 2017
Alison Goodyear will be running painting experiments over the course of the week with a few select abstract painters and with members of the public who wish to join in. She says: “I will be looking at how we negotiate during process. Will we need rules? Or will a system emerge? How will this develop those who have an established painting practice? And ultimately how will the work turn out when an aesthetic is shared/challenged or compromised?”
