Contextualizing the Text: New Investigations of the Image via the Word

Deadline: April 20, 2011

Contextualizing the Text: New Investigations of the Image via the Word
The Southeastern College Art Conference (SECAC) will hold its 67th annual meeting Nov. 9-12, 2011, in Savannah, Georgia, hosted by the Savannah College of Art and Design. Papers are invited for the session titled: "Contextualizing the Text: New Investigations of the Image via the Word"

Instances of artists who demonstrate a multiplicity of skills in varying media, here titled meta-artists, have been plentiful throughout art’s history. Artists such as Michelangelo, Leonardo, Blake, Delacroix, Reynolds, Kandinsky, and Moore have utilized pens, brushes, and chisels to create works from both the literary and visual arts. Such artists wrote treatises, manifestos, poetry, plays, journals, academic discourses, and the like, experimenting with bringing ideas to fruition in multiple forms. Rather than offering a general investigation of text/image relationships, papers in this session will explore a more nuanced intersection between texts and visual works, concentrating on artists who used their writings to bolster the academic theoretical or institutional value of their art. How were such efforts received, when it was the artists doing the theorizing, rather than the typical cast of players representing literary authority, such as philosophers, critics, and historians? Did the textual product of a meta-artist enhance his/her professional success, or hinder it? And, does an examination of an artist’s writing aid in, or inhibit, the contextualization of his/her visual work? Papers addressing case studies of ambitious artists, or more thematic approaches related to this phenomenon, are invited from a wide array of methodologies and eras.

Submission Guidelines: Submit your 300-word abstract, along with a c.v., via e-mail to the session chair by April 20, 2011 Session Chair: Dr. Melissa Geiger,
