What procedures are adopted by contemporary painters and why? How are technologies adapted and appropriated into the methods and processes of painting? What kinds of skills do painters need? The Processes of Painting explored questions about methodologies and technologies as well as notions of expression and intention through a series of conversations with painters who teach at the UAL.

Speakers included:
Stella Capes, Mikey Cuddihy,Jeffrey Dennis,Richard Dyer, Mick Finch, Rebecca Fortnum, Dereck Harris, Katrine Hjelde, Vanessa Jackson, Paula Kane, Katie Pratt, Mario Rossi and Daniel Sturgis.

The event was organized in collaboration with a newly formed Painting Research Group at UAL called Paint Club, open to all interested in developing painting research within the University and beyond. It was supported by Central St Martins, Chelsea, Wimbledon, Camberwell and Byam Shaw. How Art Thinks was an ICFAR research project that aimed to explore artists' narratives as well as find new ways to document artists' processes. This symposium coincided with the evening launch at the October Gallery of Studio Wall: Paula Kane published by Eyeseefar, ICFAR'S publishing imprint and RGAP Research Group for Artists Publications in collaboration with the Visual Intelligences Research Project at LICA, Lancaster University.
