This one-day symposium invites audiences to consider different ways in which the relationship between still and moving images is mobilized in contemporary artistic practice. Defined through and against one another, the relationship between stillness and motion is fundamental to moving image theory and discourse, and remains a central examination in many artists' work. The symposium features contributions from artists, curators and writers who will present both theoretical and practice-led perspectives on the topic, offering new approaches to thinking about this relationship in an age of image proliferation.
