Event Details

Death is one of the enduring themes in the arts, engaging visual artists working in all media. How do their works of art, from the past and present, relate to contemporary concerns about dying and death?

This two day symposium brings together leading art historians, curators and artists to discuss ideas associated with mortality and the visual arts. Topics to be addressed include: the symbolism of death, death and anatomy, death masks, photography and the limits of representation, the scene of death, and ethical and social issues. On the second day of the conference there is a special focus on works in the National Gallery's collection. Films are also included in the conference program.
