Appel à communication : « In/Accessible » (Boston, 1-2 Mars 2013)

The 29th Annual Boston University Graduate Student Symposium on the History of Art & Architecture invites submissions exploring questions of accessibility or inaccessibility of works of art, objects, and the built environment. While some works communicate directly to a broad audience or privilege an exclusive experience, others seem to mediate both poles of this dynamic. In/Accessible seeks to examine those works that make accessibility part of their interpretive structure.

Possible subjects include: public art and architecture; travel and pilgrimage ; forms of mass production ; the interface between high and low art ; esoteric references ; religious or ritual objects intended only for the initiated ; restricted architectural spaces; secretive artistic alliances; private erotica; theories of domesticity; institutional exclusivity, etc.
