Days of paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters, and colloquia.
Delegates from all over the world who attended the Tenth International Conference on the Arts in Society.
Digital technologies are engendering new platforms to produce, distribute, and display art. The work of art, as a category of labor, in the age of networked society is often argued though a grammar of participation, collaboration, and peers. Online galleries and publishers are also seen to allow for greater access to the products of the work of art. Moreover there is a perceived newfound autonomy of the artist as distributor of content and message. In addition to its usual broad range of themes on the relation of the arts to society, the 2015 conference will explore the ways in which digital technologies have altered the way that the work of art, as a category of labor, and art objects themselves, are perceived, conceptualized, and theorized.
The Tenth International Conference on the Arts in Society featured plenary sessions by some of the world’s leading thinkers and innovators in the field.
For each conference, a small number of Graduate Scholar Awards are given to outstanding graduate students who have an active academic interest in the conference area. The Award with its accompanying responsibilities provides a strong professional development opportunity for graduate students at this stage in their academic careers.
