Intersecting Practices: assessing the role and impact of contemporary art in heritage spaces

  • Date:

Participatory workshop
Leeds Art Gallery

The commissioning or siting of contemporary art in heritage spaces continues to grow as an area of contemporary practice. With many national organisations developing strategic programmes which involve artists, the impact of this practice remains an underexplored area of research.

In this participatory workshop, we will examine key issues raised by contemporary art projects in heritage spaces. The workshop will include lightening talks, roundtable discussion and an opportunity for networking. We aim to explore the possibility of future collaborations or networks, on both a local and national scale.

Participants include:
Judith King (Arts and Heritage)
Tom Freshwater (National Trust)
Jordan Kaplan (Parabola Trust)
Danielle Arnaud (Parabola Trust
Louisa Briggs (Bronte Parsonage Museum)
Gill Park (Pavilion)

Lunch and refreshments provided.
