Art world links which caught my eye…

The art world is a fashion victim, subject to trends and whims. After enduring several cycles of “painting is dead” propaganda over the last few decades, the exhibition Mixing It Up shows painting is back in the UK – as long as the artists participate in Postmodern politically correct muddled thinking.
Above all, the paintings in this exhibition are resonantly ambiguous. These works invite viewers to recruit their own imaginations in working out different ways to interpret them, whilst often questioning how their social reception might shift among different audiences. Whether reflecting on aspects of present-day experience or framing old stories from fresh perspectives, they draw on painting’s capacity for linking seemingly unrelated things (and the ideas and feelings associated with them) in ways that provoke us to find meanings for them.
Mixing It Up looks like a mixed bag, but I’m always glad to see more painting getting done.
