CONF: L’histoire de l’art et les objets (Paris, 30-31 May 18)

May 30 – 31, 2018

Les travaux récents sur les images ont montré comment de vastes perspectives s’ouvrent dès lors que l’on porte le regard au-delà de la notion moderne et européenne d’art. Mais réduire l’histoire de l’art aux seules images reviendrait à appauvrir drastiquement son domaine de compétences. Cela exclurait en effet des catégories entières d’objets qui ne sont pas des images – à commencer par les « arts appliqués » européens, qui ont pourtant eu leur part dans la constitution historique de la discipline. Les artefacts variés de cultures non-européennes, souvent pré-coloniales, sont souvent négligés eux aussi, alors même qu’un rôle décisif devrait leur revenir dans une histoire de l’art à échelle globale et de pertinence interdisciplinaire.

CFP: Connoisseurship in Contemporary Art Research (Helsinki, 29-30 Nov 18)

Helsinki, Finland
November 29 – 30, 2018

Deadline: May 28, 2018

In recent years the field of art research has become wider and polymorphous. There are at least two reasons for this. The first concerns the development and strengthening of artistic research in art academies since the late 1990’s. Today artistic research has become an umbrella term that covers all kinds of art research, especially research that concerns contemporary art.

The other reason is a consequence of structural changes in the universities and their curricula. Through these changes traditional disciplines have been merged into one another, transformed or constituted together with nearby disciplines. At the same time, practically-oriented and specific study programs that serve working life, for example curatorial studies, have become more general and increased in numbers within universities. Amongst these developments there have also appeared changes in methodologies and theoretical apparatus. Continue reading “CFP: Connoisseurship in Contemporary Art Research (Helsinki, 29-30 Nov 18)”
