By the mid-1980s painting had been declared “dead” several times over, but for the painter Jacqueline Humphries, it was a “rogue practice.” The medium has remained her foundation throughout her career. “Painting can adapt to anything,” she has said.

Join us in learning how the artist has adapted to—and subverted—what a painting can be with reference to both art history and cutting-edge technologies.
