Abstract or Description:

Painting from the Other Side, is the curatorial project section of a larger interdisciplinary practice-led research project titled Embodying the Reparative Turn: Seeking Agency through Studio Practice in Individual and Collective Contexts that investigates the potential of the reparative turn in painting, aesthetics, narrative, and curation to subvert, evade, and exit from dynamics of exclusion linked to homophobia, misogyny, and racism. It considers how systemic cultural agents propagating exclusion deploy inequity to obstruct human flourishing, then explores how they are subverted through diverse reparative practices in painting. Painting from the Other Side included an open call for paintings that engage with reparative content by artists whose identities are in some way outside of the minority power position of the Western canon of painting by straight white male artists. It included intensive studio visits and culminated in an exhibition. This paper proposes a theoretical framework of reparative painting and practice, tracing the many paths research-participant artists followed towards a reparative turn in painting.
