When addressing historical texts, artists or artworks, there are many ways in which the initiating source begins to break down. Transformative processes that occur—whether through natural or deliberate means—propose to alter the author, authorship or work. This session seeks to create a dialogue on artists or artworks that have either removed or been removed—through the very process, a residue or trace of their former state remains. We seek papers from historians, theorists and creative practitioners on ideas behind various forms of corrosion, erosion and erasure in visual and material culture.
250 word abstracts for this session can be e-mailed to Linda Carreiro, Co-Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please visit the website for other session descriptions. The University Art Association Canada's conference this year takes place at the University of Alberta in Edmonton from October 22-24, 2009.
