This half-day symposium with invited speakers focuses on the artistic interconnections and friendships formed between Austrian artists in exile in Britain during the Second World War and British artists. Foregrounding the cosmopolitan character of post war London the symposium will present new research that offers fresh and challenging perspectives on this overlooked history of artistic interchanges in Britain. Subjects will include dialogues between Ernst Eisenmayer and Victor Pasmore from the mid 1940s, the significant roles played by Camberwell School of Art and the Artists International Association (A.I.A.), and postwar sculptural developments beginning with the shared concerns of Eisenmayer and Elizabeth Frink in the mid 1960s.

This event is part of the exhibition Ernst Eisenmayer: Art Beyond Exile
