College Art Association 101st Annual Conference New York, NY, February 13-16, 2013: Bodies of Knowledge: Interviews, Interlocutors, and Art Historical Knowledge.
This panel invites contributions that examine the use of interviews in the production of art historical narratives. We consider interviews, interlocutors, and art historical narratives as representing distinctive bodies of knowledge that engage and entangle in the processes of scholarly production. By opening up questions about the relationship among interlocutors, interviews, and art historical narratives, our inquiry builds on insights from scholarship in art history, anthropology, and history including the work of Burton and Pasquariello, Clifford, and Marcus, Gupta and Ferguson, and others who have written about interviews and the disciplinary practices of knowledge production. Questions configuring our inquiry include: How do the voices of cultural producers factor into the representation of their works? How do interviews center and de-center scholarly narratives? How might interviews extend other discursive frames and theoretical orientations through which artistic production is understood? How do individual histories and interviews figure into broader narratives about collective projects and institutional agendas? How do interviews serve to substantiate various claims, to moor interpretation, or to contest other bodies of knowledge? How might interviews mediate the varying agendas of their participants? We seek to bring together contributions addressing perspectives about African artists and art with those focusing on other geographical regions so as to generate cross-regional inquiry and analysis. In this, our panel is an inquiry into the processes, methods, and instruments of knowledge production that figure across a range of art historical fields, disciplinary specialties, and diverse theoretical platforms.
