Argument

Art historical negation removes the past in ways historical, intellectual, visual and physical, through acts which can be accidental or purposeful, political or aesthetic, personal or institutional. This conference seeks to rediscover what has been lost, forgotten or suppressed in the construction of an American art history. In revealing these losses, this conference is interested in reconstructions and recoveries that challenge a unified narrative or simple chronology ; put another way, in the construction of the existing narratives, what has been removed and why? How does reintroducing these incidents affect our understanding of American art? Why have artists erased (or attempted to erase) their work or their biography? How does the obli terated or erased object have a legacy and what is added to the work in its absent state? How have institutions and museums dealt with erasures and influenced our understanding of this history?
