Painting 2.0: Expression in the Information Age Hardback
In a survey that begins in the mid-twentieth century, long before the birth of the Internet, this book traces painting's capacity to digest and transform other media, even as its own legitimacy has been questioned.
Featuring the work of numerous renowned artists, from Joseph Beuys to Cy Twombly to Amy Sillman, the book examines how painting has addressed digital technology as it relates to human experience and perception and includes three in-depth essays and additional texts by influential thinkers from the field.
Comprehensive and lavishly illustrated, a wide range of works are presented that reconsider the assumed opposition of the digital and the analog, the human and the technological, arguing that painting has served as a means to represent-and even enact-new media.
This book affirms the ongoing vitality of the medium of painting in the midst of a digital world.
