Studio Art Open Session: Abstract Painting at 100

Studio Art Open Session: Abstract Painting at 100
Abstract painting will celebrate its centenary over the next several years. For most of the twentieth century, "pure" abstraction signified the culmination of Modernism, the ideal destination for the steady march of progress. Although it has long since shed its aura of historical inevitability, abstract painting continues to maintain a strong presence in current visual culture. This panel will present an array of critical positions and approaches taken by contemporary painters.

excerpt from 1/3, 1/3, 1/3 by Richard Brautigan

The place was small and muddy and smelled like stale rain and had a large unmade bed that looked as if it had been a partner to some of the saddest love-making this side of The Cross.

There was a green bushy half-table with a couple of insect-like chairs and a little sink and a small stove that was used for cooking and heating.

There were some dirty dishes in the little sink. The dishes looked as if they had always been dirty: born dirty to last forever.

I could hear a radio playing Western music someplace in the trailer, but I couldn't find it. It was probably under a shirt or something.
