Art | Memory | Place was a year-long programme of talks and events taking place over the course of 2015-16 in the context of the ‘decade of centenaries.’ Focusing on artists whose work addresses themes relating to memory and place, the purpose of this programme was to broaden and deepen the current discussion about the subject of remembrance and commemoration and to take account of such work.
Many artists are creating work that is concerned with memory and the past but does not necessarily take the form of a memorial or a commemorative gesture. Such work may arise out of the imperative of the artist rather than in response to an event or a public commission. Artists, critical writers and researchers are also articulating their ideas about the significance and meaning of such practice. The purpose of this programme was to broaden and deepen the current discussion about the subject of remembrance and commemoration to take account of such work.
The Art | Memory | Place programme was launched in October 2015 and ran throughout 2016, focusing on the role of art and artists whose work addresses the subject of memory.
