proposals are invited for this interdisciplinary one day symposium, of interest to social and urban historians, art historians, curators, practicing artists, cultural commentators, regional and arts development organisations and social geographers.
It seeks to create interdisciplinary dialogue around the nature, history and function of regionalism in British art and the cultural institutions associated with it. It will examine the role of art and art institutions in the moulding and representation of regional and civic identities in 18th and 19th century Britain, and explore parallels and divergences in the continuing use of regionalism in the practice of 21st century artists and makers, and in the strategies of present day funding bodies and art institutions.
For further details and suggested themes for proposals, please see the RWA website.
