CFP: ‘Collaborations in Modern and Postmodern Visual Art’, 27-28 May 2010
(Monash University Prato Centre, Prato, Italy)
Collaboration has fostered ground-breaking innovations in the visual arts during the 20th and 21st centuries. This symposium focuses on the dynamics of reciprocal exchanges and collaborative experiments by modern and postmodern artists. How might we situate creative partnership within its social and historical contexts, discursive and ideological frames, and the ‘instabilities’ of gender? What new methodologies can we bring to the study of artistic collaboration? In addressing these questions, this symposium seeks to shed light on both creative co-operation and politicized critiques of traditional models of authorship.
The symposium consists of both invited talks and reviewed submissions. We welcome expressions of interest, in English, from potential audience members and speakers.
Possible topics include:
- Intersubjectivity and paradigms of reciprocity
- Collective representation and issues of authorship
- Avant-garde or Neo-avantgarde team projects
- 1960s and 1970s protest art
- Collective political engagement
Proposals of 250 words and a short CV in Word or PDF format can be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submissions is Friday 11 December 2009.
