Call for papers: Alberto Savinio Study Days
CIMA’s current exhibition, Alberto Savinio, on view through June 23, presents the first U.S. exhibition of the work of Alberto Savinio in over two decades. An exceptional visual artist and member of the Parisian avant-garde, Savinio was also a gifted and prolific writer, critic, pianist, composer, and set designer. The Savinio Study Days will be an occasion to gather together scholarly contributions in the histories of art, literature, theater, and music, illuminating the artist's renowned interdisciplinarity. Unlike conventional conferences, the Study Days will provide a rare opportunity to discuss the artist’s career while surrounded by numerous examples of his work. Panel topics: Savinio’s legacy including his impact on contemporary artist movements, Savinio as critic and subject of criticism, and sources and symbols informing Savinio’s work.
