To mark her achievement and the 1st year anniversary, Jemma is presenting “A Visual Dialogue” – her most personal curation of works to date, on the 30th January until the 8th February 2010.

Call for Papers: 'Recycling Images', Paris

Posted 16 November 2009 in External News and Events

'Recycling Images' - Forms of Appropriation in the Visual Arts, from Allusion to Plagiarism

Conference organized by:
Luciano Cheles (University of Poitiers) and
Georges Roque (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique / Ecole desHautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris),

at the Ecole desHautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris, May 6-7, 2010.

This conference will examine the re-use of images from a variety of perspectives that cut across the boundaries of genres, since pictures can migrate from their original domain to others, like painting, prints, photography, commercial advertising, political propaganda, cinema, etc. The practice of recycling images is age-old; after all, as Gombrich, echoing Wölfflin, has remarked, “all paintings owe more to other paintings, than they owe to direct observation” (Art and Illusion). While the question of appropriation has been thoroughly investigated with regard to written texts—recall the works of Antoine Compagnon and Gérard Genette—the same cannot be said of images. The present conference aims to tackle this theme from a variety of approaches.
