SPECIAL ISSUE: FALL 2013
CONTEMPORARY WOMEN ARTISTS
Call for Papers Date:
Given the multilingual and shifting locations of Caribbean women artists, this special issue of MaComère focuses on the work of women whose artistic practices engage with the multiple meanings of the Caribbean and its diaspora. Through diverse written and visual contributions, this special issue seeks to begin a conversation about the ways in which Caribbean women artists, who define themselves as such, engage with and challenge the very notion of the “Caribbean” and introduce nuanced and intertextual concepts in relation to contemporary art practice(s). We invite contributions that contextualize the artwork historically and culturally, while offering close readings of the work by extensively engaging its formal and aesthetic qualities. For our purposes, discussion of Caribbean women's artistic practice will encompass all language areas in the region and its diaspora and is intended to be as inclusive as possible.
