Call for papers

8 October 2013

‘Sharing the Field: Art in the Landscape and Landscape Archaeology’ taking place at UCL Institute of Archaeology on Saturday November 30th 2013.

This conference will bring together artists and archaeologists, with an invitation to those from related disciplines, to consider the inter-relationships between site-specific art in the landscape and landscape archaeology.  The value of artistic approaches to the interpretation of archaeological landscapes - from the deep past to the contemporary past – will be considered and conversely how the practice and results of landscape archaeology inform artistic approaches to urban, rural and industrial landscapes.

The organisers are particularly interested in papers which relate to site-specific installations and/or performance in the landscape and those which can consider new sets of opportunities for artists and archaeologists to collaborate on landscape interpretation. Papers which consider the public engagement value of outdoor events including participation in sensory explorations of landscape are also encouraged. Traditional and creative modes of presentation  - sound, film, text, image and any other – are welcomed. 

Paper proposals (up to 250 words) to Hilary Orange and Red Earth by 25th October 2013.  Register at EventBrite (free). Any questions please email Hilary Orange.

Aperture project

A cultural engagement collaboration between UCL Institute of Archaeology & Red Earth, an international arts organisation specialising in creating site-specific work within, and in response to, prehistoric landscapes. The aim of the project is to scope out the potential of cross-disciplinary collaborations and the development of public-facing cultural events linked to a number of current landscape based research projects at UCL and further afield. The Aperture project is funded by UCL Arts & Humanities Faculty.
