Symposium: Contemporary Art in Historic Contexts

Join us for a two-day international symposium examining the curatorial, artistic, and interpretive processes of presenting contemporary art in historic contexts. The program is organized and hosted by Vizcaya Museum and Gardens in Miami. Alongside its centennial in 2017, Vizcaya is also celebrating ten years of its Contemporary Arts Program (CAP), and is taking this opportunity to reflect upon the matters raised when artists create site-specific work in a historic context.

The symposium will include contributions from curators, scholars, educators and artists on issues surrounding the commissioning and presentation of contemporary art in historic and public art contexts. Presenters are confirmed from the following organizations: Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum (Boston, MA), Sir John Soane’s Museum (London, UK), Jane Addams Hull-House (Chicago, IL), The Frick Pittsburgh (Pittsburgh, PA), Huis Sonneveld (Rotterdam, NL), University of Leicester (Leicester, UK) and Kunstglaube (Vienna, AT).

The registration fee is $200 and includes the full symposium program, two breakfasts and lunches, the Sunday evening reception, and a cocktail hour and public program at the conclusion of the symposium. Limited space is available.
