Tate Britain Auditorium, London
12 & 13 March 2004
This two-day international conference, organised by the Henry Moore Institute, Leeds, will bring together an international panel of scholars, art historians, artists, curators and dealers, to engage in a dialogue about the international position of British sculptors. While the Henry Moore Institute's exhibition Other Criteria: Sculpture in 20th-century Britain (to March 28) takes stock of one hundred years of sculpture in Britain, as defined by the collections in Leeds, this conference will examine international readings and perceptions by looking at how sculpture from Britain has been collected, exhibited, understood and assimilated into contexts outside this country over the last fifty years.
Speakers and chairs include Ami Barak (FRAC), Ian Barker (International Museums Agency), Stuart Brisley (artist, London), Andrew Causey (University of Manchester), Veronica Davies (East London University), Veit Görner (Kestner Gesellschaft, Hannover), Walter Grasskamp (Kunst Akademie Munich), Antony Hudek (Courtauld Institute), Nancy Jachec (Oxford Brookes), Elizabeth Legge (University of Toronto), Fran Lloyd (Kingston University), Joan Marter (Rutgers University), Henry Meyric Hughes (curator, London), Friedrich Meschede (DAAD, Berlin), Alistair Rider (University of Leeds), Joy Sleeman (Slade), Phyllis Tuchman (independent, New York).
