Art Association of Australia and New Zealand Annual Conference

The Art Association of Australia and New Zealand (AAANZ) is the national professional body for Australian and New Zealand art historians. Its membership is comprised principally of academics in art and design, postgraduate students, artists and designers, and gallery and museum curators.

The 2017 annual conference takes place in Perth from Wednesday 6 December to Friday 8 December, hosted by the University of Western Australia.

This year’s conference theme 'Art and its Directions' is broadly conceived against the backdrop of debates relating to national sovereignty and globalisation. Rather than a focus purely on politically based art in this context, we turn to the question of directions in art, where directions refer both to geography and chronology. The aim is to investigate artistic production and exchange in relation to the geographical, conceptual and imaginative relationships between north, south, east and west, so as to encompass discussion of transnational and global art histories; and the binaries of centre and periphery, modern and traditional. The theme takes account of the conference location in Western Australia – ranging from perceptions of the west to its distinct collections, and history.

PRICE: $100-$550

CONTACT NAME: Vyonne Walker (conference administrator)
