Out of Bounds: Art, Faith and Religiosity
An interdisciplinary event
Faculty of Art and Design
Monash University, Caulfield campus, Melbourne
Wednesday August 20th - Saturday August 23rd 2008.

We would like to announce an exciting interdisciplinary event to be held
this month at Monash University

Out of Bounds: Art, Faith & Religiosity invites discussion of the complex
ways in which faith and religiosity inform artistic practice. Over forty
invited artists, academics and writers will offer their views, either in
regard to their own practice or through their observation of the practice
of others. Three internationally acclaimed speakers will present keynotes:
Janine Antoni; Dr Leslie King-Hammond and Professor Saul Ostrow.
Presentations will involve papers as well as installations, performances
and screenings, offeringrich and varied insights into the issues and
themes. This event will challenge the institutional boundaries that have
defined the traditional academy, recognising that the dynamics that engage
faith and religiosity are currently being enacted within the contemporary
cathedrals of sports stadiums such as Telstra Dome and multinational
chains of home-wares/hardware stores such as IKEA and Bunnings and
inviting the audience to participate in exploring&nb sp;the shifting
borders between private/public, state/family, practice/ideals and love and

Further information is available on the conference website, along with
facilities for online registrations.
This event provides a unique opportunity for creative and intellectual
exchange and we hope that you will be able to participate.
Convenors: Associate Professor Domenico de Clario & Dr Sarah Curtis
