The 2012 class of the ICP-Bard MFA Program in Advanced Photographic Studies, in collaboration with Bard Curatorial Studies Program, will host a Symposium/ Unconference: Writing as Practice: Peripheral Continuity. The event aims to investigate the role and use of the written word in current artistic practices and features an innovative format, combining the structure of the symposium and the less formal approach of unconference sessions.
The discussion will open within the historical context of the pre-internet era of the 1970s and 1980s when the literary and art scenes intersected and cross-pollinated. Within this context, the gathered writers, visual artists and curators will create a platform for discussion around new ideas concerning artistic practice and narrative writing as a convergence and/or partnership.
At the conclusion of the event will be a closing party and ICP-Bard MFA Open Studios at 24-20 Jackson Avenue, 3rd Floor, Long Island City, Queens.For a full list of confirmed speakers and additional information on how to register visit: www.writingaspractice.org
