Anywhere & Elsewhere 2018: biennial conference in New York

Project Anywhere

Laurent S. Labourmène, Study for the observatory, Langrian points in the Earth-Sun system, 2018.

Free two-day conference on November 15–16, 2018 at School of Art, Media, and Technology at Parsons School of Design, The New School, New York, NY—presented as part of a partnership between the Centre of Visual Art (University of Melbourne) and Parsons Fine Art (Parsons School of Design, The New School).

This biennial conference event features presentations from artists that have successfully navigated blind peer evaluation as part of Project Anywhere's Global Exhibition Program 2017–18, together with invited presentations from established artists, designers, scholars, curators and writers actively engaged in practices outside traditional circuits.

Today, an increasing number of artists and creative practitioners are working across spaces, places and temporalities well-beyond the limits of established exhibition formats. Accordingly, much contemporary creative activity is more concerned with events, actions, sites, relations and processes than with discrete outcomes.

Artistic research can be represented in multiple ways as it moves between modes of conception, production and dissemination. This free two-day conference will explore questions associated with presenting, experiencing, discussing and evaluating art located anywhereand elsewherein space and time.
