The Hamilton Kerr Institute’s upcoming two-day conference Migrants: art, artists, materials and ideas crossing borders will reflect on the role of migration as embodied in works of art, material culture and their conservation.

The conference will present diverse papers by speakers from a range of disciplines from around the world. Speakers will present on how artists, conservators and their materials, ideas and techniques have crossed borders from antiquity to the modern day. We aim to create a forum for lively and productive discussion of ongoing research interpreting art and material culture from all disciplines and periods.

We are pleased to be hosting the conference at Murray Edwards College, Cambridge. The college is home to a large collection of artwork by women artists and is a 5 minute walk from Kettles Yard House and Gallery. The conference venue is fully wheelchair accessible.

Delegate tickets include lunch on both conference days, a drinks reception on the 15th November and a copy of the post-prints, to be published by Archetype Publications Ltd. London. A dinner will also be held for 70 speakers and delegates on Thursday 15th November at Murray Edwards College, for which tickets can be purchased.
