Conference November 2-4, 2022
NATURE – ARTS interconnections organised by the Faculty of Arts and Design Timisoara
Call for papers,
The conference is open to researchers and visual artists who work on the ways in which nature in its various forms is present in visual arts. Nature has always been in the attention of artists, offering subjects for portrayal at the time when arts were mainly representational, providing a model for creation, being a source of inspiration, or standing as a value to be defended and protected against the nowadays global threats such as pollution or global warming. Deeply admired or thoroughly investigated, at the same time appropriated and transfigured in the act of creation, nature is today as relevant as always for visual arts.
The conference aims at looking at the multiplicity of ways in which artists involved nature in their artistic processes and their works. Possible topics could include experimental creative research in the natural or urban landscape, artists’ relationship with nature through interventions such as land art, scenarios of nature’s ruin and interpretations from an ecological perspective.
Papers presenting theoretical research results and presentations of artistic research are equally welcome.
