This publication features conversations on contemporary painting with artists Katharina Grosse, Bernard Frize, Beatriz Millhazes, Kathrin Bohm, Ian Davenport and George Shaw. These artists are linked as practitioners 'who happen to use paint', but also share a less obvious but nevertheless significant approach to making and exhibiting art. This lies in ideas of the 'everyday', a theme that is reflected in their various methods of production and reception, and in the ways their work challenges the highbrow, hierarchical posturing of painting over other media.
