The conference of 2016 focuses on the topic of "An artifact, art object, and argument. An object in fine arts: a task, method, and result". Discussions will dwell on an art object in its most varied manifestations, from the moment of its creation or discovery to perception and interpretation by the viewer.
It is an art object or a found artifact that attract representatives of numerous professions, such as art critics, historians, restorers, museum custodians, archeologists, artists, and art critics. All of them make contribution to the study and interpretation of art objects, thus making it possible for museum objects to go on living, developing, and accumulating new connotations, meanings and associations.
