"Art and Transnationalism"
4th International Conference on the Arts in Society
Common Ground
Venice (Italy)
28-31 July 2009


The International Conference on the Arts in Society and the
International Journal of the Arts in Society provide an
intellectual platform for the arts and art practices, and
enable an interdisciplinary conversation on the role of the
arts in society. They are intended as a place for critical
engagement, examination and experimentation of ideas that
connect the arts to their contexts in the world - in studios
and classrooms, in galleries and museums, on stage, on the
streets and in communities.

The 2009 Arts Conference will coincide with the Venice
Biennale, and will be held in conjunction with featured
exhibitions and programs. The occasion of the Venice
Biennale provides an opportunity for the Conference to serve
as a node in the larger phenomenon of fairs, festivals, and
their networks. As such, the Arts Conference aims to
discover what values, instincts and common ground may exist
within the arts and their practices and sites of reception
around the world. Your participation shapes the Conference

The theme of this year's Conference is Art and
Transnationalism. It focuses dialogue on the arts and art
practices that may be situated within the context of
international art expositions, festivals and biennials which
are engaged with the transnational production of art and its
global distribution networks. The scope is deliberately
broad and ambitious. Our times demand nothing less than
interdisciplinary and holistic approaches. The breadth of
the Conference and the Journal, however, are without
prejudice to finely grained discussion of specific, local
and grounded practices.

In addition to a roster of international main speakers, the
Arts Conference will also include numerous individual paper,
workshop and colloquium presentations by
artists/practitioners, teachers and researchers. We invite
you to respond to the Conference Call for Papers. Presenters
may choose to submit written papers for publication in the
fully refereed International Journal of the Arts in Society.
If you are unable to attend the Conference in person,
virtual registration options are also available which allow
you to submit a paper for possible publication in the

The deadline for the next round in the call for papers (a
title and short abstract) is 14 November 2008. Future
deadlines will be announced on the Conference website after
this date. Proposals are reviewed within two weeks of
submission. Full details of the Conference, including an
online proposal submission form, are to be found at the
