CFP: On the Edge of Visibility – an International Symposium

WOPHA and AWARE: Archives of Women Artists, Research and Exhibitions in partnership with Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), welcome submissions for On the Edge of Visibility – An International Symposium focused on Black and Indigenous women* and non-binary artists, with special focus on photographic practices** within three broad geographical zones: Latin America, the Caribbean, and the United States.

Offering a transcontinental approach and encompassing postcolonial, feminist, and queer perspectives, this symposium considers the concerns and complexities of defining what it means to be a Black or Indigenous woman artist within different cultural settings. It will also constitute a reflection on past and current modes of knowledge creation.

By exploring the notions of visibility and invisibility as they relate to visual practices and dominant power structures, this symposium aims to examine proposed strategies of resistance as a means of reclaiming visual agency. It will therefore seek to challenge existing academic boundaries – notably within the history of art and photography – through a multiplicity of voices and perspectives, questioning contemporary discourses and their genealogies, and considering the future of the discipline.
