The Centre seeks to generate debate concerning those pressing questions facing the contemporary condition of art, as well as providing a valuable space in which to work through the complex trajectories of contemporary art's long history. Engaging with the work being done by postgraduate students and staff in the department, the Centre provides a place to think, theorise and historicise contemporary art, exploring what it has become in light of the complex global, historical, social and political aspects of its current expanded field.
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.
