Venue: Tate Britain

Description: This conference will deal with key questions and debates raised by the Great British Art Debate project about Britishness and art, both historically and into the 21st century. The conference will explore this through a series of panel discussions and a Question Time-style session, addressing urgent questions facing British art: How has ‘British art’ been perceived and understood over time, both at home and abroad? Is British art dominated by a metropolitan centre and how are audiences constructed? Is Britishness relevant in today’s global society? What will art in Britain look like in an age of austerity?
