This year's AAH Summer Symposium, held at the University of Bristol, explores the ways in which we read images. Across the span of histories, places and modalities of art, the ways of approaching the image – our frames and frameworks – are essential to what we come to understand as 'the image', its limits and boundaries. The symposium will address reading images in diverse areas of visual culture including painting, sculpture, photography, graphic arts, film, architecture and performance.
This two-day event offers a friendly and stimulating forum in which postgraduates of Art History can present their research, gain valuable input into their work and meet other postgraduates in the discipline.
Booking fee: £15, including lunch, refreshments, and a guided curator’s visit to the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery.
Booking deadline: 14 June 2009.
Keynote speaker: Mike O’Mahony (University of Bristol)
