The Falmouth Convention was a three-day conference in unconventional form,
with an emphasis on exchange of views and experiences. Conceived as an
international meeting of artists, curators and writers to explore the
significance of time and place in relation to contemporary art and
exhibition making, it was planned to respond to the situation in Cornwall
and other such dispersed, rural areas.
