Energies in the Arts is an international conference that brings together a diverse range of influential artists and prominent scholars to address historical and contemporary activities on the seemingly elusive properties and potentials of energy.
The conference examines the dynamic relationship between art and energy. It aims to uncover the potentials of all kinds of energy – both real and imagined – to investigate how they have been understood and used in the arts and related areas of music, literature and philosophy; how various energies configure and influence one another; and how artworks and theories might be better understood through them.
Keynote speakers: Professor Linda Dalrymple Henderson, (David Bruton, Jr. Centennial Professor in Art History, The University of Texas at Austin), Professor Marcus Boon (Professor, English, York University, Toronto and Visiting Research Fellow, Faculty of Arts, Macquarie University), Martin Howse (Artist, Berlin/London); David Haines and Joyce Hinterding (Artists & Lecturers, Sydney College of the Arts, University of Sydney)
Co-presented by the National institute for Experimental Arts (NIEA), UNSW Art & Design and the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) to coincide with the exhibition Energies: Haines & Hinterding 25 June-6 September 2015 at MCA
Convened by Dr. Anna Davis (MCA Curator), Professor Douglas Kahn and Dr. Josh Wodak (National Institute for Experimental Arts, UNSW Art & Design).
