Painting in the Age of Camera

Open Day - Visual Arts

Course Description

The invention of photography in 19th century freed the artist from the pressure of creating strictly representational works and as a result many new styles and movements in art, particularly painting emerged. It became self-reflective and developed a distinct discourse based on autonomy, subjective expression and the act of painting. This is seemingly dialectal to photography. However, in this course students are expected to question the conventional dichotomy between photography and painting, explore how the two mediums have influenced each other and unearth the possibilities in their convergence.
