Forum for discussions on Painting
Paint Club is an informal network open to anyone with an interest in contemporary painting. Painting here is regarded as an expanding field, but still relating to its own specific histories and traditions. Paint Club activities publicly explore and debate what it means to ‘research’ painting within the context of contemporary art practice.
They aim to put on one or two events each year that respond to the concerns and interests of the membership. Founded by painters working in the colleges of the University of the Arts London, affiliations are being established with other institutions both in the UK and world-wide.The first public event, The Processes of Painting, was held in June 2009 at the Swedenborg Society Hall in Bloomsbury, London.
Paint Club was founded by artists Rebecca Fortnum (Middlesex University), Jeffrey Dennis (Chelsea College of Arts), Mick Finch (Central St Martins), Dereck Harris (Wimbledon College of Arts) and Daniel Sturgis (Camberwell College of Arts)
