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.
