New York University, New York City, 23-25 February 2007
Held mid way between the annual International Conference on the Arts in Society, we will work in collaboration with New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, and its Center for Art and Public Policy. Similar to our full annual conferences, this mid-year Arts Symposium will address a range of critically important themes relating to the arts, and will run in conjunction with dates of The Armory Show International Art Fair. The Symposium will serve as a platform to investigate issues raised by the Armory Show and other international showcases with respect to their impact on the art market and issues of inclusiveness, innovation, and frameworks for conceptualizing contemporary art and its public circulation and display.
In keeping with the broader theme of the symposium – Art and Public Reception – performance, film and literary arts presentations are also invited.
The deadline for the next round in the call for papers, workshops and colloquia (a title and short abstract) is 31 October 2006. Proposals are reviewed within one week of submission. Full details of the symposium are to be found at the conference website – http://www.Arts-Symposium.com
We look forward to receiving your proposals and hope you will be able to join us in New York in February 2007.
Dr Tressa Berman
Director, International Conference on the Arts in Society
