Call for Participation: TFAP Affiliated Society Session at the 2018 CAA Conference

Jul 1, 2017 - Aug 14, 2017

Los Angeles, CA


Feminist Art in Response to the State
Chairs: Rachel Lachowicz, Claremont Graduate University,
Connie Tell, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey,

Feminisms inherently engage politics, and by extension systemic state power and the marginalization and oppression of individuals. Current events have triggered a magnified importance and urgency to this engagement. The Feminist Art Project seeks proposals for papers and presentations from artists, art historians, and theorists related to the ways in which art can further respond to politics and amplify resistance to the state. Topic possibilities may be: effective strategies that artists currently or have employed and ways in which feminisms can evolve in constructing new paradigms as well as critiquing the shortcomings of existing methods. Proposals with potential images to be included are preferred.

The College Art Association (CAA) seeks paper and/or project proposals for the "Sessions Seeking Contributors" listed in this document. The "Sessions Seeking Contributors" were selected by the CAA Annual Conference Committee from proposals submitted by CAA members. All sessions will take place at the 106th Annual Conference, between Februrary 21-24, 2018, at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

All sessions are ninety minutes in length. Chairs develop sessions in a manner that is appropriate to the topics and participants of their sessions. Alternate, engaging session formats, other than consecutive readings of papers, are encouraged, and are at the discretion of the session chairs.

Paper and project proposals, sent directly to session chairs and not to CAA, must be received by August 14, 2017.
