The conference aims to address the state of the art medium in art history and into the twenty-first century. With an eye on Rosalind Krauss’ recent critique of the ‘post-medium condition’ – in which the medium is ‘outmoded, cashiered, washed-up, finished’ – and another on the extravaganza of photo-based art and digital media, the conference encourages critical responses which address some or all of the following, in relation to Australian, New Zealand and international art:

curators and theorists have long understood that context – both
physical and cultural – is fundamental to the perception of
art. International ‘biennale’ exhibitions that survey
contemporary practice provide a structure in which the issues of relationality
become unavoidable: how does an artwork change when it is transplanted
to a new setting and viewed in a new cultural, social or political
context; and how do we understand the relations between different
works, juxtaposed in an exhibition?
and theories of globalisation have provided a framework for identifying
new kinds of transcultural relationships in the arts – but what
kind of aesthetics does this call for? In addition to Bourriaud’s
‘relational aesthetics’, theorists – as well as
curators and artists – have advanced concepts such as ‘empathy’
as critical terms for understanding visual art dynamics.
