Painting is one of the oldest art forms and has long been the most prestigious medium when it comes to exhibitions. The reputation of this art form foundered with the emergence of post-modernism in the second half of the 1900s, and for some time it was said to have played out its role. The new millennium spawned new interest, however, and painting has returned to contemporary art with a broader range of expression and form than ever. This exhibition presents the entire spectrum of painting after the year 2000.

The title of both the catalogue and the exhibition draws on art historian Robert Storr’s notion of talking about art as something people are hungry for, and not just drawn to.
