Picturing the Invisible Conference

Event date
7 November 2019 - 8 November 2019 (10am to 6pm)
Picturing the Invisible Conference

How can we articulate the invisible, that which is not known, or that which is not provable?

As our understanding of the complexity of the world grows incrementally, so does our realisation that issues and problems can rarely be resolved within neat demarcations. Therefore, finding means of communicating across disciplines and fields becomes a priority.

Whilst acknowledging the essential importance of the specialist academic, the capacity to understand other disciplines, their priorities, methodologies and even the language used, can become crucial in being an effective instrument for change.

This conference is the conclusion of the one-year AHRC-funded Network Grant. This two-day event brings together leading academics from a wide range of disciplines including art and design, architecture, curatorial practice, literature, forensic science, fashion, medical science, psychoanalysis & psychotherapy, philosophy and astrophysics, with a shared interest in exploring how, in each discipline, we strive to find expression for the invisible or unknown.

The conference will be accompanied by a curated pop-up exhibition at the Triangle Space, Chelsea College of Arts.

Full schedule and speakers will be announced soon!

The conference is free to attend, but booking is essential.

We very much hope that the audience will reflect the multi-disciplinary nature of the conference and that it will be seen as an opportunity for exchange and insights across disciplines.

This conference is convened by Professor Paul Coldwell (UAL) and Professor Ruth Morgan (UCL).
