Audience impact of contemporary art and heritage

  • Date:

University of Leeds, G19, Old Mining Building, LLeeds

Jordan Kaplan and Danielle Arnaud, Tatton Biennal
Steve Swindells, Huddersfield University (TBC)

What intepretation strategies can be used in contemporary art and heritage settings? How can we analyse (both qualitatively and quantitatively) impact of art on audiences when it is placed within a museum/ historic house or other heritage attraction, including in the long-term? How do we demonstrate value of negative reactions by audiences? What innovative strategies are in place to capture the impact and audience legacy of contemporary art projects?

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.
