Impermanent durations is an exhibition of works by three artists who are also academic specialists in contemporary painting: Professor Beth Harland, Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts, Lancaster University, UK, Professor David Thomas, School of Art, RMIT University, Melbourne; and Dr Ian Woo, Programme Leader, MA Fine Arts, LASALLE College of the Arts.
The exhibition explores how paintings reflect and embody various senses and durations of time. It highlights the influence of cultural contexts on temporality in painting, demonstrated by the artists’ different aesthetic and conceptual approaches. Research and discussions developed through the exhibition will be published in a special issue of the Journal of contemporary painting, a peer-reviewed publication focusing on expanded notions and current debates in contemporary painting.
