Art History Symposium: Revisiting the Art and Craft Divide
Saturday, March 20, 2010
This symposium returns to the ideological space between art and craft to see where the lines have shifted after poststructualism and decades of looking at visual culture in terms of hybrid identities, flexible hierarchies, and deterritorializations. Are such theoretical assumptions evident in recent arts and crafts historiography or in the institutional practices of colleges, galleries, museums, and publications? Where the divide is clear between art and craft, what values are protected on each side? Non-Western, comparative, and trans-cultural considerations are welcome as are papers on related oppositions such as high and low, modern and primitive, academic and self-taught, countercultural and commercial. Papers on art and architecture, film, and design are invited. Keynote speaker to be announced.
Please send a 300-word proposal for a 25-minute lecture with a one-paragraph professional biography as an email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org.
