CHArt TWENTY-FIFTH ANNUAL CONFERENCE
OBJECT AND IDENTITY IN A DIGITAL AGE
Thursday 12 - Friday 13 November 2009
Birkbeck, University of London, Clore Lecture Theatre, Clore Management
Centre, Torrington Square, London, WC1 7HX.
This year's CHArt conference engages with the idea of object and
identity in relation to art practice, production, consumption,
representation and display. The conference will explore new notions of
the identity of the artist, including those involving collaboration and
anonymity; new conceptions and ontologies of the art object, as
processual, virtual, or hybrid; new means of consumption and reception,
whether in galleries and museums, in public spaces, or over networks of
broadcast and narrowcast; and the challenges these transformations bring
to the display of art and to its curation and access.
Places are limited so early booking is recommended.
The booking form is available online on www.chart.ac.uk. Conference
fees (pounds sterling) - include coffee/tea breaks and lunch.
