Friday 19th April 2013, Tate Britain
This is a one-day seminar on British art and the First World War at Tate Britain for members of the British Art Network. The British Art Network is a new resource and community organised by Tate – you can find more information and how to register here. The first British Art Network seminar is based around the First World War. Led by Dr Emma Chambers, Curator of Modern British Art at Tate Britain in collaboration with the Imperial War Museum, London, and with contributions from other network members, the seminar will combine an academic element with the chance to share information about individual collections and future exhibition projects.
The day will include the following presentations:
- Dr Sue Malvern: Witnessing and Testimony
- Richard Cork: Dance of Death: Young British Artists in the First World War
- Dr Jonathan Black: The Face of Death / Faces of the Dead: The Image of the Dead ‘Tommy’ in British First World War Memorial Sculpture
- Grace Brockington: Art and Pacifism in the First World War
