Centre for the Study of Contemporary Art
The aim of the Centre is to develop a lively research community for graduates and staff working and researching in the field of contemporary art. Since its establishment in 2008 we have organised a diverse programme of workshops, conferences, reading groups and exhibition visits, as well as an on-going series of invited artists' talks. One of the central objectives of the Centre is to provide a workshop-like forum for participants to present and debate 'work in progress', as well as to foster interdisciplinary exchange with other institutions outside UCL.

All events take place from 6pm in Seminar Room 3 and 4 at UCL History of Art Department, 20 - 21 Gordon Square, London WC1H 0AG unless otherwise noted.
