Painting as a Function of People and the City

The proposition of painting as...’ suggests that painting has a function beyond its aesthetic autonomous form. While the city continues to be a source of inspiration for painters in the 21st century, the conversation between Agnieszka Mlicka and Frank Creber reveals a reciprocal relationship in which painting in return responds to the urban condition and functions within its physical and social networks: as conversation, as public art, as place- making, as politics, as urban composition, as catalyst, as didactics, and as experience. The artists met on the 27th of July 2011 to discuss the many ways in which their painting practice contributes to the city and its people.
