Join us for the Fine Art Symposium 2020 which presents two days of papers by graduate researchers working across art history, curatorial practice and fine art.

To conclude the Symposium on Thursday 13 February at 5pm, Dr Julie Gough will give a keynote presentation on The object of research and Artmaking as active remembrance. The presentation explores the relationship between research, art making and public outcomes through project examples that review in particular colonial Van Diemen’s Land from a position in the present, and through the lenses of the land, the archives, memory and objects.

The Symposium will take place in Building N, and the keynote lecture will be in Building G, Level 1 Lecture Theatre G1.04
