-Paradigmatic shifts across time and space-
In keeping with this year’s conference theme, "States of Crisis", you are invited to submit papers that strive to provide a discussion of the conditions, consequences, and productivity of the many forms of “crisis” in the visual arts.
In particular, we are looking for the ways that art, architecture and museum display have pushed against, played with or have been complicit in shifts in historical, social or cultural consciousness. The focus of the conference is to engage with crisis as both an abstract theoretical concept and a material reality that impacts individuals and populations.
Some other possible motifs (though contributors are not limited to these) might include:
Medium: sculpture, painting, craft(s), murals, ephemeral, installation, prints, outdoor/environmental, digital/media, folk and film.
Periods: Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance or Early Modern, Victorian/English, Modernism, Early American.
Abstracts should be submitted to Masha at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 5, 2010
