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.

next conference 2016

The 2016 conference will be held in Canberra at ANU from 1st-3rd December 2016. More details will be available soon.
