College Art Association 103rd Annual Conference, New York, New York, February 11-14, 2015
Jan Christian Bernabe, Chair Center for Art and Thought, firstname.lastname@example.org
The emergence of Web 2.0 has facilitated a wealth of possibilities for the redistribution and consumption of art, as commercial and social-media websites make consuming art possible for a broader internet-connected public. In particular, social-media websites seem to imply a democratization of the practice of curation. These social-media sites have given rise to millions of digital “curators” who collect and publish their digital content online for their respective audiences. In light of the ease of digital accumulation, curation, and publishing content online, the session queries the practice of curation in today’s new-media and digital moment. In other words, how has the internet altered curatorial practice? The session invites scholars, curators, museum professionals, artists, web designers, and others whose work engages with virtual curatorial practices. Papers might address specific virtual curatorial projects; approaches and strategies of curating virtually; and/or the global, artistic, and social interven- tions that virtual curation inspires.
Proposals should be sent directly to the session chair and must be received by May 9, 2014. The proposal must include: CAA proposal form; preliminary abstract, 1-2 pages doubled-spaced; letter of interest noting expertise and CAA membership status; and CV. For proposal form and further CAA guidelines, see http://www.collegeart.org/proposals/2015callforparticipation.
The selected speakers’ final abstracts are due to session co-chairs by August 8, 2014. Full text of papers are due December 1, 2014.
