Fine Young Cannibals


Published on the occasion of Petzel's group exhibition Fine Young Cannibals, June 24 – August 5, 2016.

As divergent as these artists are (rarely exhibiting together), they engage the artifice of their paintings—all mechanisms, tools and attributes are laid bare in order to open up a relevant discourse on painting, abstract or representational, analog or digitally processed: what constitutes a painting today and how vital is that ‘painting-body’?

With text by Friedrich Petzel.
