The Collaborations in Modern and Postmodern Visual Art conference will be held from Thursday September 30-Friday October 1, 2010 at Monash Conference Centre, 30 Collins Street, Melbourne.
Collaboration has fostered ground-breaking innovations in the visual arts during the 20th and 21st centuries. The conference focuses on the dynamics of collaborative experiments and reciprocal exchanges by modern and postmodern artists. It will explore creative partnership in social and historical contexts, discursive and ideological frames, and gender. It seeks to formulate new methodologies in the study of artistic collaboration, to shed light on creative co-operation and to provide critiques of traditional models of authorship.
