Painting as ReModel: Revisiting Painting As Model

Yve-Alain Bois’ 'Painting as Model' which was published 1993 is still cited as being an extremely important collection of essays that looks at painting as being a conceptual and material enquiry. Bois believes that one must concentrate on both the formal elements of a work of art and its physical qualities to fully understand its totality.

To coincide with the Painting as ReModel Conference at Camberwell College of Art on the 20 & 21 June 2018 and the Journal of Contemporary Painting Special Issue on the subject, we are looking for papers that address ideas and issues that connect to Bois’ Painting As Model.

Abstract Submissions: 150 words by 16 of April 2018 to:



The Journal of Contemporary Painting is a discursive publication concerned with the practice of contemporary painting in its broadest sense. The Journal treats painting as a context for discussion, exploring its sphere of influence, rather than as a medium specific debate and is particularly interested in research emerging from practice-based projects.


JCP combines a thematic approach with an open call, each issue opening up and problematising different facets of contemporary painting.  As well as contributions to current debates on contemporary art, JCP also examines previously unpublished or un-translated historical contributions, so as to allow new debates to emerge. 


Papers are welcome from a range of perspectives and we invite expressions of interest with an initial abstract.  In particular we are currently looking for scholarship for our open issues, in addition to writings addressing the future thematic issues: Painting & Time and Gendered Painting. 


Review submissions of international painting exhibitions, books and events are welcomed and received on a rolling deadline.


Please send expressions of interest to


All articles submitted should be original work and must not be under consideration by other publications.
