2015 Art and Design

Programme and Abstracts / Documentation online 

The “grey area” between art and design is ever shifting, as are boundaries within the traditional art and design disciplines. New technologies are at the forefront of much contemporary practice, which creates challenges as practitioners are propelled into new ways of thinking and making as new and sub-disciplines evolve. In an effort to locate and discuss the types of practices that might inhabit the active area between art and design, and to evaluate how each discipline may enrich the other, historical and contemporary perspectives and discussions relating to a diversityof practice were discussed - also acknowledging that many contemporary practitioners today are invigorated through working in the shared terrain that exists between art and design.
