Symposium: Artist Perspectives on the Consequences of Military Conflict / Cheltenham, 5 February 2023

To tie in with the Wilson Art Gallery and Museum's exhibition, Clear of People, is a symposium that explores artist perspectives on the consequences of military conflict in Eastern Europe. The event brings together a panel of acclaimed artists and academics who will discuss their work and research, including first-hand accounts of how artists are continuing to make work amidst the conflict in Ukraine.

Presentations come from from Michal Iwanowski (artist and Lecturer in Photography at Cardiff Metropolitan University), Claudia Heinermann (artist) and Anastasiya Afonina (Lecturer at Lviv Academy of Art), followed by a panel discussion chaired by Dr. Tom Allbeson (Senior Lecturer in Media History, School of Journalism, Media and Culture, Cardiff University). Through their work the speakers will draw on archival and personal accounts of both historical and present-day conflicts, giving voice to individuals and communities that have been impacted by war across generations.

Supported by Cardiff Metropolitan University and the Wilson Art Gallery and Museum, this event is part of the closing weekend of the exhibition, Clear of People, by Michal Iwanowski.
