Contemporary artistic practices have prompted a reconsideration of boundaries between the roles of artists and institutional staff, and between processes of art production, exhibition, and preservation.
|Start date||28 June 2017|
|End date||30 June 2017|
This conference will provide a forum for professionals, researchers, and students working across different disciplines to discuss urgent questions regarding artwork identity, permanence and impermanence, reproducibility and replication, and the role of the artist and the institution in constructing and maintaining memory. It will explore these questions and other areas where artistic practice, curatorial practice, and conservation decision-making intersect through themes of materiality, memory and loss. AHM academic staff member Dr. Sanneke Stigter will contribute with a presentation entitled 'Picturing Peter Struycken’s Blue Waves: Collecting Memories as a Form of Conservation'.
