7 Painters is a non-thematic exhibition presenting a group of influential contemporary painters from the United States and abroad. Its objective is to place the medium’s most advanced practices in dialogue, examining the specific conceptual and technical concerns that define painting today. Each artist has played a key role in shifting the discourse of the medium. By presenting their work side by side, this exhibition aims to provoke a productive conversation reflecting on painting’s capacity for renewal.
