PROGRAMME

The focus of the CHArt 2003 Annual Conference is on the effects of emerging technologies and hybrid media on art and visual culture, particularly where these developments have fostered and encouraged new practice. The conference will discuss the ways in which new media has helped to redefine museum or gallery identity, led artists to develop new forms of practice and challenged educators.
