Judy Millar famously ‘paints backwards’, wiping paint off her canvases, creating exaggerated ‘brushstrokes’ that seem to float in illusionistic space. Discover mural-size expressive paintings by Judy Millar, alongside ‘direct’ painted films by Len Lye and Stan Brakhage and watch films of painting being performed in novel ways by Kazuo Shiraga, Yves Klein, Paul McCarthy, and Lucio Fontana. Take part in gallery activities and discuss the connections you can see between painting and performance. Join in a hands-on workshop to experiment with painting and movement.
