CALL FOR PAPERS
Art Performance Film: Postgraduate Symposium in the History of Art, University of Glasgow, 21st - 22nd May 2010
'The Arts' as an umbrella term encompasses a huge variety of media, yet it is all too common that academics and artists divide themselves into somewhat segregated areas of study. However, as interdisciplinary research becomes more common in the university context, and artists and performers combine aspects of different 'Arts' in their work, it becomes increasingly important to remove the barriers impeding cross-disciplinary study.
Due to its status as both a collaborative and multimedia art form, the film medium is an ideal platform for initiating debate around the topic of interdisciplinarity in the arts. This conference seeks to blend the fields of film, theatre, art, music and performance studies, discussing the variety of ways in which film relates to a range of artistic disciplines. As well as inviting papers from researchers in these areas, we would particularly encourage proposals from artists, musicians and performers who also work with film, forming a panel of practitioners discussing issues of film in the artistic process.
Art, Performance, Film will open up an interdisciplinary dialogue, addressing a broad variety of issues in the visual and performing arts. We invite proposals that may include film, performance, poster and multimedia presentations, as well as lecture/recitals in the case of musicologists. Topics could include, but are not limited to:
Film as the artistic medium
Artists as Costume/Set Designers
Technological implications and conservation
Music and filmed performance
Avant-garde and experimental cinema
Art and the artist as film subject (documentary and narrative)
Dance and dancers on film
Classification issues of inter-disciplinary art
The film musical
Abstracts of 200 words for papers of 20 minutes in length should be submitted in English with the speaker's name, institutional affiliation, the title of the paper, and, if applicable, a list of any audio-visual requirements.
