Presenter
Dr Veronica Tello
Post-institutional critique; or, art in an age of necropolitics

Veronica Tello is the UNSW’s Vice-Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Research Fellow and a researcher at the National Institute for Experimental Arts (NIEA). Her current research examines contemporary art at the intersection of social practice, public art and institutional critique. Her forthcoming book Counter-Memorial Aesthetics: Contemporary Art and Refugee Histories (Radical Aesthetics Radical Art series, Bloomsbury) analyses how contemporary artists have adopted experimental methods for memorialising recent refugee flows spanning Cuba–America, Middle-East–Australia and Africa–Europe.
