The Humanities and Arts Research Centre at Royal Holloway University of London presents:

Making Space for Art Symposium

For as long as art has existed, so too has the question of where and how it is experienced. Art institutions, from the major national collections to regional museums, and university galleries, play an important role in reflecting, and in shaping, cultural identity. The practice and the reception of art are constantly evolving, and so the role of curating has diversified to engage with the changing nature and growing diversity of artistic practices.This one-day symposium explores the relationship between curating, display, and space, and examines the ways in which different practices of curating can shape our understanding of physical as well as cultural environments. The invited speakers represent a wide cross-section of different types of art space with contrasting imperatives, objectives and priorities.
