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)”

CFP: ARTis ON 7, Issue: Art & Power

Deadline: Sep 15, 2018

The new issue of ARTis ON will focus on ART & POWER. These theme is related to both present and past, which raises numerous questions that transcend cultural and temporal boundaries.

In a dynamic of reciprocity, but also of great paradox, the relation between art and power can be as alliance but also as contestation, given the power and communicational effectiveness that art, in its various domains, holds. From fine arts to architecture, through music, theater, literature or cinema, it is therefore essential understand the context in which each work of art is created and displayed, as well as the impact on public opinion and society, on a transtemporal approach that considers all its period of existence.
