Imagination Becomes Reality

The publications that accompanied this series of shows (click on Post Title) are difficult to collect as a set now. However, the online archive provides a great overview of works included in this very interesting look at notions of expanded painting practice, which took place from 2005 to 2007 at ZKM, Karlsruhe.

Noblesse Oblige

Click on Post Title for link to an article from a month or so ago on  +BILLION-  blog, for an interesting take on the positioning of painting within the curation of group shows. The 'obligation' it refers to (to place paintings within certain exhibitions) has got NOCM thinking about 'the Tuymans effect' that sprung perhaps from Documenta 11 in 2002; also remembering that he was included in that show along with  very few other painters- Cecilia Edefalk, Leon Golub and (at a push) Raymond Pettibon.
