Contemporary Bristish Paintings Paula MacArthur and Casper White will join Jonathan Powell from elysium gallery & Beep Painting Biennial to discuss artist-led initiatives and the future of open call art competitions.
Paula and Casper are both members of ‘Contemporary British Painting’ (also known as CBP and @paintbritain on Instagram)which is an artist led organisation which explores and promotes current trends in British painting through group exhibitions, talks, publications, and by placing paintings in art museums. The group is run entirely by volunteers from within the membership.

CBP founded the The Contemporary British Painting Prize in 2016, an annual prize promoting the best of contemporary painting produced in the UK.

CBP members are scattered throughout the UK and Ireland so it makes perfect sense for us to travel around the British Isles. It’s very easy to fall into the trap of becoming too London-centric and miss out on all the hundreds of fantastic spaces elsewhere, so it is our aim to continue sharing our passion about painting as widely as possible in real life, in print and online.
