The work of artists who use new media art, live art and other 'variable
media' is increasingly being drawn into our national public collections.
Excellent models exist where major works are acquired or where artists
are commissioned specifically to create works for collections. This
symposium offers an opportunity to learn from pioneering institutions
that have worked with artists. Keynote speaker: Benjamin Weil, Chief
Curator of LABoral Centro de Arte y Creacion Industrial de Gijon, Spain.
Other confirmed speakers include: Laura Sillars, Programmes Director,
FACT; Lisa Panting, Director, Picture This; Lois Keidan, Director, Live
Art Development Agency; Graham Harwood, artist.
Programmed by the Contemporary Art Society's National Network in
partnership with CRUMB.
