The Conference aims to create a space of exchange and debate for museum managers, professors, researchers, artists, students and professionals of the cultural world. The frontiers or limits in the conception of art and its shape in museums will be subjects of debate.
The form of participation foresees contributions through a call for papers. In addition, the Conference will have roundtables, specific seminars and the intervention of renown international specialists.
Our International Conference has the will to become a forum of reflection about the conceptual problematic of art in the museums nowadays. We hope that the permeability of intellectual frontiers in the different disciplines (Art History, museology, art critics, aesthetics, communication, education, technology, heritage preservation and restoration, etc.) will allow us to caress the limits of art.
