Making, Meaning, and Context: A Radical Reconsideration of Art’s Work

WHAT:  Call for Proposals
DEADLINE: March 15, 2011
WHO: Performance artists, teachers, and more

The committee invites international submissions of proposals for performances, papers, performative lectures, collaborative presentations, participatory workshops and experimental forms of engaging dialogue.

At this time in history, what does it mean to pursue an “art practice” or identify as an “artist?”  How has “art’s work” (creation, production, or manufacture) evolved aesthetically and situationally in support of or in resistance to a culture of commodification and consumption?  How have the roles of art, artist, and audience been resituated?  What is the potential for art to create civic sites for public discourse and expression?  What are the ways in which art might be complicit in upholding the narratives of modernism, capitalism, and other contested narratives?  What is the potential for interdisciplinary practice to contribute research and knowledge production that will support daily lives, diverse ecosystems, and the expansive realm of human imagination?
