What makes a painting a painting? Paint? Canvas? A frame?
This show presents works by 22 international artists that look and act like paintings.
They are paintings, without paint. There are works made of mercury, t-shirts, shampoo, flies, tar and feathers, condensation, fabric, mirrors, salt, vegetable dye, broken glass, aluminium, chemicals, newspaper, 24-carat gold, fabric, pills, emergency blankets, wood, broken glass ... but no paint. The show asks what defines a painting? All of these things make paintings, but how? Where are the boundaries and what do we think the rules are?
