The question “is painting dead?” has been asked for well over a century now; however, many artists today are embracing paint as a medium with vital potential to be continuously rethought, rather than viewing it in opposition to contemporary practice.

This exhibition presents work by twelve contemporary artists who use pigment or paint as both material and idea, in ways encompassing sculpture, installation, exhibition, performance, video and painting.

Ch Ch Ch Changing comprises six pairs of artists, who have worked together in that unique relationship between teacher (artist) and student (emerging artist) on Fine Art courses at Camberwell, Goldsmiths, Kensington and Chelsea, Slade, Kingston, and Wimbledon.

Ch Ch Ch Changing is an exhibition curated by Erika Winstone, inspired by the song ‘Changes’ by David Bowie (1971) and the book ‘Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes: Artists talking about Teaching’ edited by David Mollin and John Reardon (2009).
