Research impact of contemporary art and heritage

15 May 2014, 2.30 – 4.30pm
University of Leeds, Baines Wing, Seminar Room 1.13

Tom Freshwater, National Trust
Laura Guy, Inheritance Projects
Helen Moore, York Minster

With three complimentary presentations for this final seminar, we are particularly interested in discussing the way in which contemporary art contributes to heritage research. How, for example, can contemporary art speak about other overlooked, marginalised or contentious histories? Building on our central aim, we are interested in finding ways we might capture the benefit of this work for all stakeholders.

This seminar is free but booking is required.

This event is part of Intersecting Practices: assessing the role and impact of contemporary art in heritage spaces, a new project funded by Creative and Cultural Industries Exchange, University of Leeds.

The initiative is made up of a group of artists, researchers and curators who are all, in one way or another, involved with projects which incorporate the commissioning and siting of contemporary art in heritage spaces. This working group has been established to explore further the ways in which we might capture, measure and articulate the value of these intersections and will focus on shared interests and questions relating to the challenges of assessing the role and impact of these projects.
