Marking Domains is a one-day conference that explores illustration and narrative art as domain. Examining the contrasting places they are encountered, from the traditional use and location of illustration in print to its new expanded developments beyond the page. Fast developing into a discipline capable of occupying positions once assumed the domain of other practices in art and design, illustration is rarely discussed as a visual form of cultural and social significance. In this conference we will specifically be contrasting illustration in the internal, domestic place of home with the external, public space of the street.
Speakers include Geoff Grandfield, Mireille Fauchon, Graham Rawle, Lotte Crawford, Olivia Ahmad, Paddy Molloy, Robert Sollis and Tom Kelly of the Bogside Artists will deliver a Keynote presentation about the murals of Derry and their role as a human document of the cost of conflict.
This conference has been organised by the Department of Illustration Animation, Kingston University and will be held on Friday 7th April 2017, 11.15 – 17.00. Doors open at 11am.
