our conference

The annual AAANZ conferences play a central part in the intellectual and institutional life of art history in Australia and New Zealand. We invite preeminent art historians as our keynote speakers, and encourage them to address new methods, ideas, practices, and pressing cultural concerns. Our conferences attract as many as 500 delegates, with up to 200 papers delivered, from early-career researchers to eminent academics, curators, artists, and designers.
