Call for Sessions: Art and its directions, AAANZ (Perth)

The Conference Committee would like to invite proposals for panel sessions for the AAANZ 2017 Conference in Perth.

The deadline for session proposals is COB Monday 22 May 2017

Please see the submission instructions below. All enquiries to conf@aaanz.info.

This year’s conference theme Art and its Directions is broadly conceived against the backdrop of debates relating to national sovereignty and globalisation. Rather than purely a focus on politically based art in this context, we turn to the question of directions in art, where directions refer both to geography and chronology. The aim is to investigate artistic production and exchange in relation to the geographical, conceptual and imaginative relationships between north, south, east and west, so as to encompass discussion of transnational and global art histories; and the binaries of centre and periphery, modern and traditional. The theme takes account of the conference location in Western Australia – ranging from perceptions of the west to its distinct collections, and history.

There is also focus upon how art objects and art practices exist in different spatial and temporal contexts. This may include discussion of the mobility of objects and the materials of art, and of curatorial practices relating to the display of works of art.

Convenors of panel sessions might consider subject areas such as:

  • The theorising of geographies in relation to art
  • Art and the changing history of place
  • Landscapes, travel and the sensory dimension of place
  • Heritage, nostalgia and anachronism in art
  • Contemporary curatorial practice and its global aspects
  • Indigenous art and cultural objects in their original settings and in the museum
  • The legacy of colonialism in historical and contemporary art practice
  • Emigré and refugee artists, and cross-cultural exchange
  • Representations of the cosmos, and the mapping of sea and land in Aboriginal art
  • Aboriginal rock art and cross-cultural encounters
  • Art and cartography, navigation, travel and trade
  • The translocation of art through commercial forces and war
  • The mobility of images in the digital age, including the role of photography
  • The space of the studio and its relation to the outer world

The Getty Provenance Index® has added 138,000 database records of art sales from the 1600s and 1700s

New Sales Data Trace the First Hundred Years
of the British Auction Market

The Getty Provenance Index has, for three decades, been a leading resource for scholarship on the history of collecting. Founded in the early 1980s by Burton Fredericksen, the first curator of paintings for the Getty Museum, the Provenance Index has evolved into a collection of online databases with 1.75 million records indexing the works of art described in source documents such as auction catalogs, archival inventories, and dealer stock books. This data can be used to trace the ownership of works of art and to examine patterns in collecting and art markets.
