To coincide with the latest in a series of contemporary interventions, Yinka Shonibare MBE at Greenwich, Royal Museums Greenwich is organising a one-day conference to explore the role of contemporary art outside the white cube.
In recent years it has become increasingly popular for museums and historic buildings to invite living artists to respond to their buildings or collections by curating, creating or performing on site. What has been the impact of this popular collaborative trend for artists, museums and their audiences?
Themes addressed by the conference include: the artist as curator/the curator as artist; contemporary art, memory and commemoration; the relationship between artists, museums and the market; artistsí residencies and audience engagement.
The conference will conclude with a curator-led tour of the Yinka Shonibare exhibition in the Queen's House.
The fee is £50 (or concessions £40). For more information, a programme and booking form please visit our website or contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 8312 6716.
