Art of the Lost: Conference 2019

Art of the Lost: Conference 2019

Canterbury Cathedral is proud to present its second Conservation and Collections Conference – Art of the Lost: Discussing the future of the past, from 27 to 29 November 2019.

This conference will explore and appraise current and developing studies of how art changes, is reused or repurposed, disappears or is rediscovered.

It will look at how and why art is defaced, destroyed or is lost within architectural settings, with a particular focus on art within the context of cathedrals, churches or other places of worship.

It will consider changing ideologies, iconoclasm, war, fashion and symbolism. It will cover art from the 6th century to the modern day.
