Call for papers: Art Out of Time

603Art Out Of Time invites academics, curators and artists to challenge
periodization anxiety apparent in the recent trend for inviting
contemporary artists into museums to create interventions in early
modern displays; or for juxtaposing medieval and modern art in current
publications. This symposium starts from questions as to whether
distinctions between pre-, early-, and post- modern are disciplinary
fictions, what exactly is gained and what is lost in this dialogue—or
clash—between old and new objects, and if museums perhaps want to get
rid of a ‘stuffy’ reputation to take on some of the lustre and prestige
of contemporary art.  Speakers include Whitney Davis, Karen Lang, Tamar
Garb, Ian Kiaer, Amy Powell, Elizabeth Price, and Alexander Sturgis.

We invite abstracts for presentations in one of the four workshops
organized around specific themes (see below). Selected papers will be
included in the conference publication.

Please send a 300-word abstract, a short cv, and an indication in which
workshop you would like to participate to
visualresearch@torch.ox.ac.uk.  Deadline: April 30, 2014.  For more
