Call for Papers – Chicago Art Journal
Deadline October 23, 2007
The role of relationships in the history of art warrant fresh
focus. Having long played an essential role in the development of art, their relevance is apparent in historical andcontemporary practices. The Chicago Art Journal, which solely features the work of graduate students, is seeking
papers, reviews, and works of art, that address the theme of
relationships in the production and function of art.
Relationships inform art through friendships, love affairs,
kinship and location, as well as through political, religious
and ethnic associations. In addition, artistic relationships
take shape through pedagogy, apprenticeships, workshops,
patronage, salons, collaborations, collectives, colonies, andmore recently, residencies and studio programs.
In what ways are relationships evident in works of art – how
do they relate to the world, to the history of art, and to theidea of authorship? To what extent does the formation of
particular relationships support, challenge or circumvent
prevailing social systems? What are the goals, expectations
and limitations of such relationships? How have particular
group formations been the catalyst for the emergence of new
techniques and mediums? In turn, how have these innovations
acted upon the dynamic of groups? The investigation of this
theme seeks to re-evaluate the social production and function
of art in private and public spheres.
