A conference organised by the Performing Art History Special Interest Group
12.00 – 18.00 (with registration from 11.30)
Kenneth Clark Lecture Theatre, The Courtauld Institute of Art, Somerset House, Strand, London WC2
Building on a second year of workshops and seminars, the Performing Art History Group present a second conference exploring the clarity, diversity, and freedom that can come from presenting art historical research directly to an audience.
Shifting away from the inevitable limitations of more traditional, static routes for art history in books or journals, the conference will showcase a wide range of new techniques and technologies at the disposal of researchers. As such, papers will look to their content for interesting and novel ways of presenting information and communicating research, blurring subject and presentation through a variety of media and rhetorical techniques: video, sound, reconstructive software, artificial intelligence, and audience participation.
This year the conference also has an additional focus on collaboration, bringing together art historians from different parts of the discipline, as well as artists and scientists, to present papers that take the common ground between scholars as a starting point for both content and method. In so doing, the conference hopes to encourage and explore new directions in the live environment of art history, as well as allowing interesting and diverse partnerships to emerge both within the discipline and beyond it.
Open to all, free admission but due to limited space advance booking is required. Online booking: http://courtauld- institute.digitalmuseum.co.uk
