Based on a conference at Harvard University in 2013 in response to recent developments in pictorial practice and critical discourse, this collection of texts seeks new ways to approach and historicise the question of the medium. Looking back to the earliest theoretical and institutional definitions of painting, this book focuses on the changing role of materiality in establishing painting as the privileged practice, discourse and institution of modernity.Contributors include: Carol Armstrong, Benjamin H. D. Buchloh, Sabeth Buchmann, René Démoris, Isabelle Graw, David Joselit, Jutta Koether, Ewa Lajer-Burcharth, Jacqueline Lichtenstein, Julie Mehretu, Matt Saunders, Amy Sillman
