The call for papers for the 2024 Art Association of Australia and New Zealand Conference PAST, PRESENT, POSSIBLE FUTURES is now open. To apply, see the full CFP on our website and read the instructions, and then submit your proposal form to the relevant panel convenor/s.

Conference theme | Past, present, possible futures
Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of AAANZ, this year’s conference will encourage participants to explore the past, present, and possible futures of art history, curating, and creative practice in Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand. The 2024 AAANZ conference aims to spotlight the significance of art historical research being undertaken in our region today. We also encourage participants to reflect upon the histories of the discipline (including histories of AAANZ itself), as well as considering future challenges and possibilities for art history and creative research. Where has art history come from? Where is it today? Where is it going?

Who should apply?
The AAANZ conference is held every year, and is the region’s major conference for art historians, artists and researchers.

We welcome proposals from historians of art, design & visual culture; curators; artist-researchers; and GLAM sector professionals. Proposals should engage with the panel abstract, reflecting the conference theme. We particularly welcome proposals from First Nations delegates and researchers, early-career researchers, and practice-led researchers.

Call for papers deadline: Wednesday 31 July, 2024.

Questions about specific panels and submission of papers to panels should be directed to the relevant convenor/s. General enquiries and questions regarding the conference such as registration please email
