The Immediacy of Paint: Surface symposium focuses on questioning how artists are currently exploring surface and the materiality of paint in contemporary art.
Immediacy of Paint: Surface is a one day event focused on how artists are currently exploring surface and the materiality of painting in the digital. This is the second symposium to be held at The University of Suffolk to include talks and a panel discussion presented by artists and academics. By bringing together artists, academics and art students in our region whose practice focus is on painting in the contemporary moment, the symposium explores the immediacy of paint through surface.
