The two-day international conference “THAT ART EXHIBITS” will draw attention to what it means for art to exhibit. With a specific focus on artistic research the conference brings together research projects that integrate processes of artistic agency and mediation in the field of contemporary art and visual culture at large, beyond the ostensible dichotomy between artist and curator. “THAT ART EXHIBITS” explores the notions of curation and display/exhibition as artistic research practices.

Everyone is free to participate in the conference, but registration is required. All conference details and the registration form on our website. During the conference you can also visit LUX, the LUCA Showcase 2016.

“THAT ART EXHIBITS” is an EARN conference organised by LUCA School of Arts and the Lieven Gevaert Research Centre, in cooperation with rAAk (Research Center for Architecture & the Arts at KU Leuven Association) and Villa Empain – Boghossian Foundation.
