CFP: Stedelijk Studies 9: Modernism in Migration

Deadline: Feb 20, 2019

Stedelijk Studies 9 (Fall 2019):

Modernism in Migration: Relocating Artists, Objects and Institutions, 1900–1960

THEME OUTLINE
In the production and reception of art, processes of migration play a crucial role. This is particularly true for modernism and the historical avant-gardes of the twentieth century, when artists’ transnational networks and migrations across countries and continents greatly impacted artistic developments. Besides artists and agents such as art dealers and art historians, works of art and art institutions also migrated. For an upcoming issue of Stedelijk Studies, we invite scholars to explore forms of migration and their influence on the development and dissemination of modern art around the world from 1900–1960.

The Malevich Society is pleased to announce its call for 2018 grant applications.

Based in New York, the Malevich Society is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to advancing the knowledge about the Russian artist Kazimir Malevich and his work.

In the belief that Malevich was a pioneer of modern art who should be recognized for his key contributions to the history of Modernism, the Society awards grants to encourage research, writing, and other activities related to his history and memory.

The Society welcomes applications from scholars of any nationality and at various stages of their career. Graduate students are welcome to apply after completing at least one year of dissertation research. Proposed projects should increase the understanding of Malevich and his work, or augment historical, biographical, or artistic information about Malevich and/or his artistic legacy. The Society also supports translations and the publication of relevant texts.

Application forms and instructions may be requested by e-mail at info@malevichsociety.org or may be downloaded from the Society’s website: www.malevichsociety.org.

CONF: Annual Third Year Postgraduate Symposium (London, 8-9 Jun 17)

London, Kenneth Clark Lecture Theatre
The Courtauld Institute of Art
Somerset House, Strand, June 8 – 09, 2017
Registration deadline: Jun 7, 2017

The Courtauld’s New Research Symposium 2017 is a platform for third-year PhD candidates to present and exchange their research to their peers, the wider scholarly community and the public. Ranging from medieval England to contemporary Bosnia-Herzegovina via Renaissance Florence the conference will bring questions concerning materiality, identity and institutions to bear on art and politics. Whether performing a close analysis of a late-fifteenth-century altarpiece frame or a Marxist reading of photographic technologies after the 2008 financial crisis, what are the pressing methodological questions for the discipline? This conference provides a place to consider how the cohort has been collectively thinking through critical challenges and new directions for the History of Art.

Including a keynote by Lynda Nead (Pevsner Professor of History of Art, Birkbeck, University of London)

Free, all welcome, but booking required:

We invite proposals from artists, academics and curators that focus on a specific artwork or artistic practice, to address the indicative themes and questions below:

How do artists like Nil Yalter, David Medalla, and Stanley Brouwn, amongst others, approach and engage with Conceptualism?
How are formations of race, class, gender and sexuality addressed through Conceptualist art practices in Europe after 1968 and among emerging contemporary artists such as Mathieu Kleyebe Abonnenc?
How can Conceptualism be understood anew through intersectional readings and international framings?
How have public collections contested mainstream white male-dominated definitions of Conceptualism in Europe?
How does the term ‘Black’ resonate, if at all, within discourses of Conceptualism and modernism across specific European regions and contexts?
