20 speakers from 17 academic institutions explore the theme of movements and transformations in Iberian and Latin American art, architecture, and visual culture from the late middle ages to the present day. The topics are wide-ranging, from the physical movement of artists and artworks across different regions to the transformative power of art and architecture in the forging of identities. The papers address important questions relating to the circulation of art, art theory, and artefacts across time and space; changing constructs of identity (social, religious, political etc.); appropriations of traditions across different media and societies; artistic agency and innovation; and cultural translation. Opportunities for questions and answers will follow the presentations. The aim is to stimulate conversations and connections among emerging scholars engaged in the field of Iberian and Latin American art and visual culture.

The symposium begins with an opening address by José María Robles Fraga (Embassy of Spain) and features a keynote by Prof. Claudia Hopkins (Director of the Zurbarán Centre).

Organised by Durham University doctoral students, the symposium is held as a hybrid event with in-person attendance at Hatfield College at Durham University and virtual attendance via Zoom.

For those coming in person and able to spend more time in Durham, we will be arranging a visit to the Spanish Gallery in Bishop Auckland on Wednesday, 21st June. Details will be provided closer to the event.

Booking is essential by 20 June 2023.
