n.paradoxa vol 21 and call for papers for vol 22

n.paradoxa invites feminist scholars, artists and curators working on contemporary art by women to contribute to future issues of its bi-annual publication.

Volume 22: Incidental (copy deadline: May 15 2008, to be published July 2008)
Yve Lomax’s book, Sounding the Event (2005), provides the inspiration for this volume. What is the status of an event? An incident? This is key to both installation and performance works, namely, their recognition as an event of note, as something which is recognised for being an event. What is the contribution of women producers to the production of noteworthy events in contemporary art? Another theme draws on the other meaning of “incidental”, in the trivial or minor, will be used to explore concepts of the everyday in contemporary art.

Please send a one page abstract outlining the argument and artworks and artists to be discussed plus a statement about yourself to the editor, Katy Deepwell, k.deepwell@ukonline.co.uk
