Telos, a Greek word referring to an end or final state, and etymologically connoting a turning point, sets the theme for the10th-anniversary issue of The
Chicago Art Journal. The Journal is currently soliciting papers, reviews, artwork, and interviews that address issues surrounding completeness, termination, and
culmination in the visual arts. Papers
(10-25 pages) may engage any number of themes broadly related to ends in their numerous evocations. In addition, as Art History approaches the end of its
first century as an established discipline some commentors raise the question of the discipline's own ends. Here, the Journal solicits articles that discuss works
from any period or any subject so long as the paper
entails reflection on historiographic ends in Art History. We are also seeking interviews and reviews of pertinent books, exhibitions and conferences (5-10
pages), as well as artwork and architectural designs addressing themes of telos. Committed to exploring intersections between Art History and contemporary
art, the Journal continues its effort to give exposure to the current work of artists.
Topics of interest might include, but are not limited to:
perishable & ephemeral objects,
boundaries of artistic media,
hell & paradise,
concept of the ruin,
geocultural boundaries & colonialism.
The Journal is devoted to presenting graduate student scholarship and work in the visual arts from all fields and disciplines. Written work should be submitted
on paper as well as on diskette in Microsoft Word, and must follow The Chicago Manual of Style. Artists and architects should submit slides or prints, resume
or artist's statement and SASE for return.
