Philosophy and Art

Deadline: January 15, 2008

Call for Papers

First Annual Art and Philosophy Conference at Stony Brook Manhattan:

March 28 – 29, 2008

The Masters in Art and Philosophy Program at Stony Brook University in Manhattan studies the intersections of art and theory. In our efforts to further the dialogue between traditionally disparate fields of study, we offer this conference as an interdisciplinary event. We welcome participants from a variety of fields and media to respond to our inaugural theme:

veils

Desiring dialogue between the worlds of art and philosophy, this conference investigates the relationship between creative activity and theoretical endeavor as they bear upon the notion of veils. Invoking “veils,” we gesture toward perception and materialization through method, space and presence, hiddenness, mechanism, expressivity, feeling, purpose and meaning. How are these elements significant in the movement of art and philosophy? How do different media map the horizon of truth in art? Are art and theory more or less veiled in relation to each other? Does contemporary culture stand in need of greater or fewer, more opaque or more transparent veils? How does engaging the trope of veils contribute to the dialogue between aesthetic theory, artistic practice, and art criticism? 

These questions are not exhaustive, but they are intended to provoke thought about the theme of veils as it bears on the dynamic relationship of art and theory. Where these fields converge, we open our inquiry.

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS:

We invite the submission of original papers appropriate to these themes from graduate students across disciplines. Complete papers should be formatted for blind review and submitted via email to philosophyartconference@notes.cc.sunysb.edu as a word document (.doc). Please include a 300 – 500 word abstract and a separate cover sheet with the author’s name, paper title, institutional affiliation, mailing address, and email address. Papers should be suitable for a 20-minute presentation (8-10 pages). 

We welcome the submission of work for exhibition or performance that relates to our theme in any media and about which the artists will be willing to present or engage in dialogue. Please submit your work digitally on a CD with no more than (5) jpg. images or (3) minutes of video, film, or sound. Include an explanation of how your work relates to our theme and a proposal for presentation, installation, and/or performance at the conference.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS:

Submissions must be received by January 15, 2008.

The conference will take place on Friday and Saturday March 28 and 29 at Stony Brook Manhattan: 401 Park Ave South. For further information and updates, please consult www.philosophyartconference.org. Please contact philosophyartconference@notes.cc.sunysb.edu with any questions.
