'Painting as a Document', Paint Club at Tate Britain # 2 Friday 25th April 2014 1pm
Painting as a Document: Friday April 25th 1pm - 2.30 pm Clore Auditorium, Tate Britain.
What is lost or gained when we view a painting as a complex document, rather like any other kind of historical or anthropological source? Does this form of analysis, however finely tuned, actually ignore some other, more essential form of experience that a painting offers us, something inextricably bound up with our humanity, and with the painting’s physical status as an object in the world?
Join us for the second of two Paint Club events at Tate Britain. An artist and a writer discuss their relationship with particular paintings on display at Tate Britain, during an interactive lunchtime event
