Our Annual Conference brings together international research and critical debate about art, art history and visual cultures. This key annual event is an opportunity to keep up to date with new research, hear leading keynotes, broaden networks and exchange ideas.
The Annual Conference is open to all. It is a key annual event for those presenting new research, and those wanting to listen and learn about new research. Attracting around 500 attendees each year, the conference is popular with academics, curators, practitioners, phd students, early career researchers and non-art historians engaged with art history research. Members of the Association get reduced conference rates.
