"Call for Artists: Exchanges, Borders, Translations"
2002-08-28 until 2002-10-01
Chicago Art Journal
USA United States of America
Exchange designates acts of giving and receiving among individuals and societies, from objects to people, and between spaces and identities. Borders, both spatial and imagined, are a significant part of any active exchange; transactions implicate a process of circulation and simultaneously promise transformations. Yet any exchange can reaffirm hierarchies, promote a sense of place, and nestle the giver and receiver within a common frame of understanding. What happens during and results from the movement of ideas, people, and things? How do acts of giving and receiving define relations, boundaries, and processes?
This year’s Journal seeks
inquiries on the commensurable—objects, relations, and ideas that move about by a common denominator—and the translations that result from such passages.
As the sites, processes and consequences of exchange inform such broad ranging inquiry, the Journal encourages submissions from areas outside art history, including but not limited to anthropology, literary criticism, and cultural studies.
In keeping and encouraging its connection with the activities of artists and museums, the Journal also seeks submissions of art works as well as interviews and reviews of related books, exhibitions and conferences.
Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
Performance of Exchange; Gifts and Giving
Intentions and Receptions of Objects/ Buildings
Dialogical References Across Media
Reciprocation and Confusion
Boundaries, Peripheries and Thresholds
Colonialism and Marginalism
Tourism and Pilgrimage
Marriages and Political Alliances
Consummated/ Thwarted Relationships
Captivity, Theft, and Piracy
