CFP: Northeastern Modern Languages Association’s “Art of Caring: Women and Genderqueer Art Curatorship” Conference

Calls for Submissions

Submit an abstract for the conference, “Art of Caring: Women and Genderqueer Art Curatorship,” hosted by Northeastern Modern Languages Association (NeMLA) on March 10-13 in Baltimore, Maryland. This session will deal with the ways that a feminist and/or genderqueer praxis in art curatorship can address historical inequalities in the art world. 

While intentionally broad, this could deal with such questions as what feminist and/or genderqueer curatorship looks like, relationships between women and/or genderqueer artists, the ways in which women and genderqueer artists generate their own networks of worth outside of the current hierarchy (such as online platforms), if and how we can create more inclusive spaces for women and genderqueer people in the current system, as well as highlighting current and past curators who have created safe spaces for women and genderqueer individuals. 

Within the field of Art History in the past, there has been a lack of female and genderqueer representation. This session will deal with the ways that curatorship has evolved and new practices that elevate the genderqueer, cis, and trans women.

Abstracts due September 30, 2021. Contact Meredith Martin of McGill University at [email protected] with questions. Visit NeMLA to submit an abstract.
