The Representational Art Conference
Type: Conferences & Symposia [View all]
Posted by: California Lutheran University
Deadline: Thu, April 4th, 2019
Imagination lies at the heart of art. Without it, creativity is impossible. But what is it, how is it employed, and what is its role in representational art? It is a term that everybody celebrates, but it is also (depending on how it is understood) the locus of fundamental disagreements about the nature of the artistic enterprise. This year’s TRAC invites artists and thinkers to reflect together on the imagination’s role in representational art.
We invite submissions on a range of topics related to the imagination, such as:
· Imagination and the atelier
· Graham Harman’s object-oriented ontology
· Metaphor and imagination
· What is the relationship between 21st Century representational art and the past?
· Pop-surrealism and lowbrow imagination
· How is imagination different from creativity?
· Critical approaches to science fiction and fantasy art and artists
· Which 21st-century artists have best used the constructive role of imagination in art?
· What is the connection between imagination and symbolism in art?
· The Pre-Raphaelite imagination and 21st-century representation
We are looking forward to reading your submission!
