Art Review Call for Papers

Art Review is a bilingual academic journal initiated by Sichuan University (China), and co-founded with Ball State University (United States) and Concordia University (Canada). Art Review is interested in English-language submissions pertaining to all areas and stylistic periods of Art, Art History, Visual Studies, Art Criticism, and Art Theory. We are particularly interested in essays that take an interdisciplinary approach or focus upon the international exchange of art and/or the work of Chinese artists overseas.
Art Review advocates a broad definition of “Art,” with no constraints placed upon genre, subject matter, or time period. We accept essays dealing with the traditional arts, but also those pertaining to film, television, performance, installation, design (advertisements, packaging, corporate images, posters, industrial design, etc.), environmental art, digital multi-media art and fashion. We welcome contributions from all over the world and accept submissions from individuals, artistic organizations, art galleries and exhibition curators both home and abroad. Contributors may submit feature articles, short essays, interviews, or relevant exhibition or book reviews.
Art Review is a printed journal with full-color illustrations. Contributions do not need to meet a certain word-count or page-length, but should follow the Chicago Manual of Style. Please direct any questions you may have regarding contributions to:

Free Student Program at the Guggenheim Museum

Dear Dr. Posch,

I am writing in regards to a FREE student program at the Guggenheim that we believe will be of particular interest to your students.

John Chamberlain: A Conversation
Tuesday, March 13, 6:30 pm
$10, $7 members, FREE for students with a valid ID. To reserve a student ticket, please e-mail boxoffice@guggenheim.org.
Engaged in explorations of shifts in scale, materials, and techniques, John Chamberlain created a body of work that ranges from monochromatic iron sculptures to experiments in foam, Plexiglas, and paper to large-scale foil works made near the end of his accomplished career. Early in his practice, Chamberlain developed a unique and well-recognized assemblage process, a method he continued to harness in over sixty-years of artistic production. Join us for a lively discussion about the inventive career of the late American artist as Susan Davidson, curator of John Chamberlain: Choices and Senior Curator of Collections and Exhibitions at the Guggenheim Museum, leads a conversation with art critic and author Dave Hickey, Distinguished Professor of Criticism in the Department of Art and Art History at the University of New Mexico, and Donna De Salvo, Chief Curator and Deputy Director at the Whitney Museum of American Art. A reception and exhibition viewing follow.

The Guggenheim would be thrilled to have Pratt students attend John Chamberlain: A Conversation and would be grateful if you shared this information with your community through a web listing, e-mail newsletter or social media. Please let me know if there is any other information I can provide you.

For more information about John Chamberlain: Choices and our related programming, visit guggenheim.org/chamberlain.

Many thanks,
Katherine
