Call for Submissions for Unlikely Issue 4 ‘Cancelled’

Issue 4: Cancelled Call for Proposals For Creative Art Works Guest Editor: Maia Nichols They say “[t]he time of heroes is over” [1], hoping to bury with it all forms of heroism. Certain key aspects of society are irretrievable, crossed out, eliminated. The exhibition invites artworks that consider how the fields of communication, hacking, design, architecture, activism, scientific or artistic practices produce effects through cancellation, deflection, or discretion. Works selected will be considered for how they approach the intersection between image, text and documentation, and how they address what is presented in the call. Proposals for Creative Works are due March 12th 2017, abstracts for papers are due March 19th 2017.

Call for Submissions | Art and Herbarium – Journal issue

Issue 3: Art and Herbarium Guest Editors: Danielle Wyatt and Thomas Bristow   ART AND HERBARIUM: CREATIVE ECOLOGICAL INVESTIGATIONS Herbaria and natural history archives must be more than repositories for artifacts and scientific information. Curators of these collections are aware that while the archives have always been invested with human passions, natural collections are now laden with distinctly contemporary affect as ‘nature’ comes under threat from global challenges like species extinction, habitat loss and the impacts of man-made climate change. While natural collections institutions aim to improve our ecological futures through scientific research, it is clear that ecological literacy also requires involving diverse publics in more embodied, empathetic and ethical relationships with the natural systems that sustain our life on this planet. Creative Ecological Investigations #1 (CEI#1) is an art project placing a multidisciplinary selection of artists in contact with…

Call for Papers | Gender in Southeast Asian Art Histories | Sydney October 2017

Gender in Southeast Asian Art Histories | An international symposium hosted by the Power Institute, University of Sydney, Australia, 11–13 October 2017 Proposals due 28 February 2017 Studies focused on gender in Southeast Asian societies have emerged, in recent decades, in approximate concurrence with the development of regionally focused Southeast Asian art histories. The founding premise of this international symposium is that there has hitherto been insufficient discursive intersection between these two fields. Topics discussed may include: 1. Accounts of individual artists and collectives whose work engages with gender; 2. Investigations of gender in the exhibitionary, critical, and historiographical receptions of works of art, from any period 3. Considerations of the relationships between artists and/or works of art and larger Southeast Asian cultural constructs of gender, as enacted in political, economic, religious and other domains. Proposals will be particularly welcomed for papers…

Symposium | Agency and aesthetics: A symposium on the expanded field of photography | Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki

With more photographs circulating than ever before, what do photographers want their images to do? How are artists retaining agency amongst the changing ontology of photography and its conventions and technologies? Does photography either in an art gallery or online still offer a democratic potential in its ability to alter or resist existing positions? As part of considering the shifting politics and aesthetics of photography the event is an opportunity to consider the current nature of subjectivity in image worlds. If the selfie is the “the first format of the new global majority” as Niholas Mirzoeff has stated, how has it continued to be an argument about who a person is and what they stand for? Where is the self situated in the convergence of images and multiple public personae online? This day-long symposium invites artists, writers, critics, academics and…

Call for Papers | Atlantic Studies: Global Currents Special Issue: “Colonial Caribbean Visual Cultures”

Image: James Hakewill, Haughton Court, Hanover, Jamaica, Yale Center for British Art, Paul Mellon Collection

This multidisciplinary collection will examine the creation and circulation of colonial visual cultures from the Caribbean during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The era of Caribbean slavery placed the islands at the centre of the production and movement of goods, ideas, money and peoples, as well as cultural conflicts, exchanges and hybridities which created new challenges for artists, and new ways of looking. As a cornerstone of European imperial expansion the Caribbean had an enormous imaginative influence on Europe and the wider world. Tropical vistas and diverse peoples provided new visual subjects, and the art of the Caribbean participated in the circum-Atlantic movement of aesthetics, ideas and images: from mid-eighteenth-century georgic scenes which attempted to reconcile beauty with enslaved labour, to the colonial picturesque of the 1790s which rearticulated metropolitan landscape visions, to the unique botanical and zoological images which…
