As a creative force, imagination has been integral in understanding individual artistic endeavours, seen as a key concept in aesthetics and art theory. And since art is a form of cultural expression, it is only natural to expect the visual imagination to abound in cultural connotations. This conference seeks to explore the connections between the visual forms of artistic expression and the concept of creative imagination across cultures. Suggested areas of inquiry may include (but by no means have to be limited to) the following:
fine art / installation art / multimedia art / performance art / interactive art / photography / digital photography / film / video / television / comic books / graphic novels /
art theory / aesthetics / philosophy / visual representation in the arts / visual imagination in literature
Abstracts of papers 150-300 words and panel sessions 300-500 words in English, accompanied by a brief bio-note in English of the presenter(s) with contact information for the lead person should be made to the conference organizers.
The deadline for submission for international presentations has been extended till June 15, 2010. Domestic proposals will be considered until June 30, 2010. All submissions will be carefully reviewed and notification of results will be made within two weeks of receipt.
All proposals should be submitted to the conference organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org
