CALL-FOR-PAPERS (submissions should be postmarked by January 13, 2006)

The Museum of Modern Art seeks submissions for the Second Annual Graduate Symposium.

In the past few decades, the art world has seen unprecedented growth and globalization. These developments are apparent in a number of areas: new and larger museums and cultural institutions; a thriving market of galleries, art fairs, and biennials around the world; new press outlets for the dissemination of art criticism, marketing and education through traditional and new media; increased attention, research, and art that addresses non-Western subjects; and the professionalization of artists, museum administrators and curators through emerging MA, MFA, and PhD programs. How do critics and scholars comprehend the significance of both local and international artistic activity? What traditional and new tools for analysis do they use?

Eligibility is limited to graduate students who hold at least an MA in art history or other related disciplines. PhD candidates who have completed their MA requirements, PhD’s, and recent postdoctorates (within the last two years) are also encouraged to apply.
