Painting in the 21st Century Symposium at The Phillips Collection

I wish I could make it to this event, if you can, you should. I would really like to hear from Jonathan Fineberg
Symposium: Painting in the 21st Century

The Phillips Collection
1600 21st Street NW
Washington, DC

Saturday, September 27, 2008 10 am - 5 pm

Although widely proclaimed dead in the 1980s, painting has returned to prominence in recent years. This symposium will examine the state of contemporary painting from a range of perspectives, embracing the artist's point of view and those of the art historian and critic.
