Call for Posters


Tate Britain is holding an international conference, in collaboration with Birkbeck, University of London and Culture at King’s College London, to mark the opening of the exhibition Artist and Empire (25 November 2015 – 10 April 2016). Scholars, curators and artists from around Britain and the world will gather to consider art created under the conditions of the British Empire, its aftermath, and its future in museum and gallery displays.

A poster session is being organised as part of the conference in order to give early career researchers an opportunity to share research related to the topic of Artist & Empire and receive feedback from leaders in this field. A number of scholars will be given the opportunity to present their research in A2 format, which will be on display at the conference for delegates.

Those interested in presenting research at the conference should submit for consideration a short abstract of no more than 200 words outlining the subject of the poster to the conference administrator, Jessica Knights, at A short CV should also be submitted. The deadline for submitting abstracts is Wednesday 28th October 2015.

We would be grateful if you could circulate this call widely to your colleagues and students.


More information about the conference and exhibition can be found at A full programme will be available shortly.
