Talking in Brackets: Research and Reaction in Painting
On the penultimate day of Damien Flood’s current exhibition at Green on Red Gallery, and almost three years on from their legendary discussion ‘Painting in Parentheses (In Brackets!)’, Damien Flood and James Merrigan return to the gallery to critically discuss Flood’s current work and critically explore painting practice in general.
The hook for the last discussion was: painting can no longer be just painting anymore, it also has to be an Idea, or at the very least, dress itself in an Idea. The hook for this discussion is: what is the difference between a painting born of research and a painting born of instinct?
Like last time around we ask you to come armed with your own opinions and questions, because like you, we are looking for answers to the questions posed, and in some ideal cases, solutions.
After this conversation the gallery will host a Listening Party of music that influenced and inspired the work, on Sunday, November 27 at 2pm as part of Dublin Gallery Weekend, 2016.
