War, Art and Visual Culture: Perth is an evening symposium event addressing today’s images of war, terror and political violence. These images are unlike those of the past – and the stakes are particularly high. News images of attacks on major cities are immediate and their presentation emotive, videos of military strikes and terror incidents spark across the internet in seconds. Contemporary artists and photojournalists reflect on these images, sometimes offering alternative perspectives on war and violence.

War, Art and Visual Culture: Perth includes a panel discussion of academics from Curtin University's School of Media, Creative Arts and Social Inquiry, followed by international Keynote speaker Dr Rebecca A Adelman (UMBC).

This is the fourth in a series of five international symposia, in Sydney, London and Los Angeles in 2019, with Perth and Sydney in 2021. War, Art and Visual Culture: Perth is supported by Curtin University's School of Media, Creative Arts and Social Inquiry and the Australian Government through the Art in Conflict ARC Linkage Project (LP170100039).
