Contemporary Art in the Heritage Experience Conference 29 & 30 July 2019
This two day international conference at Newcastle University is a key output of the ‘Mapping Contemporary Art in the Heritage Experience’ research project. It provides a platform to discuss the broader character of contemporary art in heritage and the impact of such projects on their producers and audiences, sharing knowledge across the arts and heritage sector for those engaged in or wishing to develop this area of practice. The conference is focused on the key themes of Creation and Encounters. The programme features presentations from artists, curators, heritage organisations and academic researchers who submitted papers through our Open Call, alongside panel discussions and keynote presentations from leading practitioners within the field. It also includes an opportunity to visit our research exhibition ‘Out of Place’ at Newcastle’s Hatton Gallery and a new MCAHE commission by Marcus Coates for National Trust Cherryburn located just outside the city in rural Northumberland. Participants and delegates staying over in Newcastle on 30 July also have the option of attending a post-conference networking breakfast and workshop on 31 July.
Conference registration closed on 12 July.
We are very pleased to confirm the involvement of two distinguished keynote speakers in our conference programme:
