This three-day international conference is dedicated to the intellectual, historical and methodological crossovers between sculpture and archaeology, from prehistory to the present. It looks at the myths and metaphors of archaeology and at their sculptural currency, at the archaeological and sculptural status of the fragment, at the philosophy of place and questions of site- specificity, and at the idea of the artist as archaeologist. It brings together archaeologists, art historians and sculptors and is chaired by Dana Arnold, Barbara Bender, Thomas Dowson, Anne Wagner and Jon Wood.The speakers are Jonathan Black, Fred Bohrer, Sarah Bowler (and collaborators on the ‘excavate/overlay’ project), Sebastian Boyle, Stephanie Brown, Simon Callery, Nicholas Cullinan, Lynne Cooke, Mark Dion, Thomas Dowson, Eugene Dwyer, Christopher Evans, Christine Finn, Margaret Garlake, Talinn Grigor, Cornelius Holtorf, Andrew Jones, Sian Jones, Claudine Mitchell, Fred Orton, Sven Ouzman, Will Rea, Helen Rees-Leahy, Fay Stevens, Frances Stracey, Julian Thomas, Flora Vilches, and Robert Wallis.
