Premier Dalton McGuinty was delighted to hear that the ninth "Context & Meaning" conference by Queen's Graduate Visual Culture Association (GVCA) will be entirely bilingual. Attracting graduate student speakers from across Canada and the USA, this conference continues to provide important presenting opportunities to students.
The annual conference will take place on February 5-6, 2010 at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre (AEAC) at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario.
The GVCA was formed in 2003 to enhance the quality of graduate student life in the Department of Art at Queen's University. One of the primary functions of the GVCA is to organize the annual Art History and Art Conservation conference.
Now in its ninth year, the conference has run under the title of Context and Meaning for the past seven years. The broadly defined theme, which focuses on art in context and its meaning, is intended to provide an inclusive forum allowing graduate students to present currently scholarly research and engage in academic discussion.
