AboutIt is increasingly common for artists to explore anthropological and ethnographic concerns in their practice. At the same time, artists themselves have become a subject for study for contemporary anthropologists. In this symposium, researchers working in and between both fields will come together to explore links, friction and potential in a celebration of cross-disciplinary exchange.
Coordinated in response to Arnolfini's Parallel Universes season, the event will include presentations and facilitated discussion, and is open to all.
CALL FOR PAPERS/PRESENTATIONS/PERFORMANCESâ¦
Proposals are invited exploring any aspect of cross-over between art and anthropology, from postgraduate students and early-career independent practitioners.
Please send up to 200 words outlining your proposal, up to 3 images, and a CV to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 31st.
Performative presentations are very welcome. However, any technical requirements beyond the use of a projector will need discussion.
Speakers will be offered bursaries to cover travel and expenses.
Organised by Matt Webber, MA student in the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology, University of Bristol, and Phil Owen, artist and Arnolfini Research Assistant.
