The MFA program at the School of Visual Arts in NYC is holding a conference next December called Critical Information: Mapping the Intersection of Art and Technology. The event is in the pretty distant future, but they just put out a call for graduate papers, with the submission deadline of June 30, 2011. The info says they are particularly interested in topics of “Art and Social Theory, Media and Memory, the History and Future of the Image, Mediated Image Making, Identity and Representation in the Mediated Environment, Philosophy and Media, the Work of Art in the Information Age, and more. All themes pertaining to the juncture of media, theory, and the visual arts will be considered.” Sounds pretty interesting…
