The theme for Canterbury Cathedral’s annual conference is ‘Art of the Lost’ and it will be held from November 26-28, 2019. The conference will explore and appraise current and developing studies of how art changes, is reused or repurposed, disappears or is rediscovered. It will look at how and why art is defaced, destroyed or is lost within architectural settings, with a particular focus on art within the context of cathedrals, churches or other places of worship. Alongside this conference, we hope to develop an exhibition in the Daphne Oram that also broadly examines these themes.
The Centre for Practice Based Research in the Arts is hosting a day of work in progress presentations on Wednesday 29th May 2019 in Pf06.
The day offers staff and postgraduate students an opportunity to seek feedback on developing work in progress. These events use the Critical Response Framework (CRP) developed by Liz Lerman as a way to structure discussion and allow the participants to gain the most from giving and receiving feedback. The aim is to enable the artists involved to produce their best work possible and to share ideas about creating and disseminating artistic practice as part of practice-research methodologies.
