“Surely you don’t think that a stupid demonstration of
brushwork, or of the rhetoric of painting and its
elements, could ever achieve anything, say anything,
express any longing.” Gerhard Richter, Interview with Benjamin Buchloh 1986.

Arthur C. Danto said in a panel discussion in 2003 that the
late eighties “…‘Death of Painting’ was in part an expression
of ressentiment against the painting that was causing so much
excitement in the early '80s, neo-expressionism. But it seems
evident that the target must have been, in part, the form of
life in which the affluence of the Reagan years expressed
itself in collecting art, in ‘getting in on the ground floor’
through acquiring paintings that were certain to appreciate in
the way that Abstract Expressionist paintings had done--so
that ‘bad painting’ was a kind of willed uglification, a
refusal to be complicit in the agenda of painting-as-luxury. I
am not a social historian, but it seems to me, if I am right
in these speculations, that the true art history of the '80s
has not yet begun to be addressed.”

Taking as its title Paul McCarthy's mantra from his 1995 video
'Painter', this group show of painting looks at the difficult
task of still making an expressive genre of painting which
both looks back to the problematic period of 1980's Neo
Expressionism and re-examines the legacy of the expressionist
gesture in painting now.
