About this event

The event will take place from 9.30 - 17.45
Where do we see art? What impact do exhibition spaces have on how an artwork is received? Who is art created for? Who owns public art?

New Voices 2016 encourages delegates to consider art outside of conventional exhibition spaces.The worldwide socio-political impact of art exhibited outside the conventional gallery space has encouraged artists and curators to create new and innovative methods of engagement that provide alternative models to that of the traditional gallery setting. New Voices 2016 aims to address the growing significance of ‘Art Outside the Gallery’ within this discourse.
