Call For Papers

UAAC-AAUC Annual Conference Call for Papers

Online Conference - 2020 - Congrès

Conference Dates: October 15–17, 2020

Session: Updating the Account: Women Artists in Museums and Beyond

Submission Deadline: July 31, 2020

Recent headlines suggest an increase in institutional initiatives to support the work of women and underrepresented artists. The Baltimore Museum of Art, for instance, announced that in 2020 it would only acquire work made by women artists. In Canada, the Art Gallery of Ontario deaccessioned 20 works by A. Y. Jackson in 2019 to diversify its collection of Indigenous and Canadian art. Despite such recent initiatives, a 2019 study by artnet News and In Other Words found that work by women artists accounted for only 11 percent of acquisitions and 14 percent of exhibitions in a survey of the top American museums over the last decade. This session seeks quantitative or qualitative analyses of the current status of women-identified artists in Canada and abroad. Papers that address representation and diversity within any of the interrelated spheres of museums, governmental funding, art prizes, and the art market are welcome. Intersectional approaches that examine joint factors such as gender identity, race, and socioeconomic status are particularly encouraged.

Please send proposals (300 words) and a brief biography (150 words) using the UAAC-AAUC submission form to session chair Amy C. Wallace (awallac5@uottawa.ca) by July 31, 2020. The submission form and conference regulations are available on the conference website (http://uaac-aauc.com/conference/).

Note that the 2020 UAAC-AAUC Conference will be held online.
