presents this symposium led by Dr Sunil Manghani, Reader in Critical and Cultural Theory at Winchester School of Art.
With the advent of new narratives of protest, social networks and community-engagement, the "social" and the "political" in art has been back in the spotlight.
What does this mean for the painter?
What is the " commitment" of/to painting, as an aesthetic and/or ethical/political practice?
Dr Manghani will be joined by 5 artists who will draw upon their own practices in exploring and interrogating the subject:
Dr Catherine Ferguson
The aim of paintclubeast is to support the professional development of painters in the UK’s Eastern region by enabling critical debate about contemporary painting.
This is achieved through a programme of talks by leading international/national painters and also by discussion held in studios and other venues.

CLAUDIA BÖSE, a painter based in Ipswich, Suffolk.
I construct my paintings through process, led by daily life, history and nature. I hope my ongoing engagement with light, colour and forms creates a new perception.
I am inspired and guided by the painterly process and its relation to abstraction; the way I handle paint invites an audience to consider my work without prejudice.
Decisions about when and how I use paint are also strongly guided by my empathy for work which has been created by other women painters.
I am drawn to regions which could be described as, geographical and psychological borderlands, especially those which have been interpreted throughout history by artists and writers.
Recently I began working in a new studio based high in the church tower of a modernist church in Ipswich; this is also adjacent to our allotment.
The very unusual perspective in tandem with attending to plants has already provided a different grounding and enrichment for my work.
