Work by Carl Ostendarp, visiting assistant professor for the Department of Art, is part of The Indiscipline of Painting, an international group exhibition including works by forty-nine artists from the 1960s to now.

Selected by British painter Daniel Sturgis, the exhibition considers how abstraction has remained a site of urgent, relevant and critical inquiry for generations of artists over the last 50 years.

The exhibition goes on to demonstrate the ways in which the history and legacy of abstract painting continues to inspire artists working today.

The exhibition is a rare opportunity to see paintings by historical and contemporary figures. The show brings together works by British, American, and European artists made over the last five decades and features major new commissions and loans. It includes important works by Andy Warhol, Frank Stella, Michael Craig-Martin, and Bridget Riley alongside younger artists such as Tomma Abts, Tauba Auerbach, Jacob Kassay, and Cheyney Thompson.

The Indiscipline of Painting is a collaborative project between Mead Gallery and Tate St Ives, and runs from October 2011 through early March 2012.
