updated: 
Monday, February 16, 2015 - 4:20pm
Nathalie Fouyer

This panel explores the rise of Surrealism in America and Eastern philosophies in California (mid-20th century), highlighting the process of creating impersonal art.

This session encourages papers that examine the creative process of filmmakers, writers, philosophers, and artists who nurtured each other's desires to take Surrealism to a more profound level of expression, and for whom the purpose of art was self-transcending awareness.

Please send 250-500 word abstracts by 15 March 2015 to Nathalie Fouyer (nathalie.fouyer@qc.cuny.edu).
