Jeffrey Deitch, who curated the exhibition "The Painting Factory" at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles in 2012, spoke about a group of artists who have advanced the tradition of abstract painting. They incorporate contemporary
image-making technology, a performative approach, and a sensitivity to the social context. The talk focused on the innovations and influence of Andy Warhol, Rudolf Stingel, Christopher Wool, Mark Bradford, Wade Guyton, Josh Smith, Tauba Auerbach and others on recent abstract painting.
