The work of artists who use new media art, live art and other 'variable  
media' is increasingly being drawn into our national public  
collections. Excellent models exist where major works are acquired or  
where artists are commissioned specifically to create works for  
collections. This symposium offers an opportunity to learn from  
pioneering institutions that have worked with artists. Keynote speaker:  
Benjamin Weil, Chief Curator of LABoral Centro de Arte y Creacion  
Industrial de Gijon, Spain. Other confirmed speakers include: Laura  
Sillars, Programmes Director, FACT; Lisa Panting, Director, Picture  
This; Lois Keidan, Director, Live Art Development Agency; Graham  
Harwood, artist.

Programmed by the Contemporary Art Society's National Network in  
partnership with CRUMB.
