Call for Proposals
Parallax is seeking proposals for presentations at the symposium concerning the situation of art professionals in a global (post-national?) world.
Established by emerging artists, critics, curators, art historians and art managers who met whilst working at the 53rd Venice Biennale Parallax Venice aims to facilitate exchange of experience, knowledge, ideas between art professionals across geographical, political and professional boundaries.
During Venice Biennale 2009 Parallax presented a series of events and performances, opening up a creative dialogue and building a platform for creative encounters with artistic peers across geographical, political and professional boundaries.
Challenging the established hierarchies between artist, curator, management, and invigilator roles Parallax provides a new/revised model of social and professional interaction and creates unique professional development and networking events on an international stage.
With the Venice Biennale drawing to its end, Parallax Venice has decided to launch its Offsite Programme. Part of it is a series of events that will take place in February in Milton Keynes, including a symposium concerning the situation of art professionals in a global world.
Taking the Venice Biennale, which was context and catalyst for the birth of the Parallax , as a starting point, presentations are invited to consider:
Proposals are invited from both researchers and practitioners in all fields of Visual Art , including but not limited to students, artists, curators, art critics, art historians , art managers, educators and facilitators.
