Panel focus: It has been said that Picasso preferred to scrawl a quick sketch than pay for his dinner in cash. In this anecdote, his concept of money evidently never surmounted his working-class background that saw a causal relationship between time and currency: the negligible minute or two to draw something was, in his mind, of less worth than the restaurant bill. This logic still continues to resonate in most people today, which then begs the question of how time itself becomes a factor in an artistic practice. Focusing on the spontaneity and/or patience demonstrated in their work, the panel participants will discuss their understanding of time and the part it plays in the audience's perception.
