The Tableau Project is a series of events culminating in a 2 day conference at Tate Modern in October 2011 that broadly addresses questions about the structuring of pictorial representation and forms. Keynote presentations from Philip Armstrong, Fulvia Carnevale, Jean François Chevrier and Michael Fried will take place on the 1st day of the Tate conference followed by a 2nd day of research papers, in preparation for this, there will be 2 research symposia. In addition there will be a 3 day seminar given by Jean François Chevrier. Where possible there will be general access to these events. The project is organised by Mick Finch and Jane Lee, The School of Art, Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in collaboration with Paint Club.
