is the 2019 edition of the European Artistic 
Research Network (EARN) conference which is 
convened by the School of Fine Art, History of 
Art and Cultural Studies, University of Leeds in 
partnership with Leeds Art Gallery and Pavilion. 
During the conference we will explore the 
pluralised viewpoint that our contemporary 
critical methods demand, addressing the ways in 
which artist-researchers or curatorial practices 
take positions on or emphasise shifting patterns 
of coexistent temporalities within the 
historical, social, political and economic 
contexts of contemporary visual culture. 
Contributions will address questions such as (a) 
How do viewpoints that fragment, multiply or 
compete bring into question notions of proximity 
and complicity, i.e. the distances and 
engagements that artists can choose to have or 
not have in the societies they live in and the 
industries they depend upon? or (b) How do 
contexts and histories bear on all of our sensory 
experiences of making and viewing-building upon 
existing images, events, documents, materials, 
performances, theories and testimonies, all of 
which are themselves already intertextual, 
mediated "migrations"?

(European Artistic Research Network) was 
established to share and exchange knowledge and 
experience in artistic research; foster mobility, 
and dialogue among art researchers; and promote 
wider dissemination of artistic research. EARN
