Picturing the Invisible: a two-day conference

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.

at Chelsea College of Arts, Banqueting Suite

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

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. PV: 5.30-8pm Thursday 7 November 2019.

Confirmed Speakers: Jose-Eliel Camargo-Molina, Paul Coldwell, Stephan Doering, Mark Emberton, Adam Gibson, Owen Hopkins, Roger Kneebone, Martyna Marciniak (Forensic Architecture), Ruth Morgan, Jo Norris, Sandra Ross, Tanja Staehler, Susan Tallman, Irene Tracey, Roberto Trotta, Tabitha Tuckett.
