Art Schools: Histories and Trajectories
November 25, 2019 - November 27, 2019
The 2019 conference is dedicated to the histories and trajectories of art schools. It focuses on fine arts institutions as well as the marginal avant-garde groups that emerged in response to the multiple developments in art theories and innovative artistic practice around the globe.
It seeks to examine the varying historical and institutional formations of art schools, and the emergence of groups and movements around new and alternative ideas. The programme brings together scholars and art professionals from different countries to look at specific contexts in Algeria, France, India, Iran, Lebanon, Morocco, Nigeria, Palestine, Sudan and Tunisia.
This is the second annual conference organised by MATHAF: Arab Museum of Modern Art and the Doha Institute for Graduate Studies.
