Painting Since 1970, Part 1

Today was the fourteenth lecture in the 150 Years of Contemporary Art Lecture Series focusing on Painting Since 1970, Part 1 at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery.

Linda Besemer - Fold #88, 2004
"The news of the death of painting in the 1960s was greatly exaggerated. Since then, painters have taken many paths, developing new approaches and adopting new materials. Artists of the 1970s came up with a variety of ways to reintroduce representational images into art; stories, imagination, and expression were all resurrected by artists such as Neil Jenney, Susan Rothenberg, Anselm Kiefer, and Julian Schnabel. Since then, painters have developed even more new approaches—many of them non-traditional—adopted new materials, and taken painting in many creative and fascinating directions." -source
