Suzanne Hudson’s original survey offers a critical snapshot of more than 200 artists from around the world who are defining the painterly ideas and aesthetics of our time. She starts by mapping the history of painting in the modern and postmodern eras, and then goes on to explore in six chapters the themes of appropriation, attitude, production and distribution, the body, painting about painting, and painters who introduce performance, installation and textiles into their work to critique painting itself.
