Announcement

Argument

The centenary of Odilon Redon’s death (Bordeaux, 1840-Paris, 1916) is registered as a national commemoration and will be celebrated in his birthplace withseveral events: after the opening of an exhibition of the artist’s landscapes at the Musée des beaux-arts (La nature silencieuse. Paysages d’Odilon Redon, December 2016 to March 2017), Bordeaux will host an international conference organized by the Centre François-Georges Pariset (Université Bordeaux Montaigne), the Musée des beaux-arts de Bordeaux, the University of Geneva and the Association Musée d’art Gustave Fayet à Fontfroide (MAGFF).

The conference will consist of two sessions. The first one, entitled Redon Unpublished, will take place on 15 December 2016 and be devoted to a presentation of the first results of the study of Odilon Redon’s and Gustave Fayet’s archives, which the famous collector’s descendants have generously opened to preselected scholars. On 16 December the second session, for which this call for papers is issued, will examine the reception and influence of Redon and his art from 1916 to the present day.

All forms of reception, all possible paths along which Redon’s influence could be exerted during this ‘long twentieth century’ are concerned. The aim of the conference is not only to increase and renew the understanding of its objects, but also to bring together scholars from various contexts, entertaining diverse interests and methods, and let them exchange observations and ideas. Therefore, proposals may deal with Redon’s reception by art criticism, for instance on the occasion of posthumous exhibitions, or with art history and historiography (biographies, exhibition catalogues, catalogues raisonnés, journal articles), with writing on art in a broad sense (fiction included), as well as with the building of private and public collections, with display and temporary exhibitions, with issues of conservation-restoration, and with all forms of artistic and para-artistic reception (copies, fakes, imitations, emulation, Wirkungsgeschichte, appropriations, homages, caricatures, etc.), in all genres and media (film, television, the internet, advertisement, as much as painting, engraving or drawing). Subjects may be defined thematically (surrealism, flower pieces, pastel, history of science…), historically (interwar period, before and after the 1994 Chicago-Amsterdam-London exhibition…), geographically (France, Netherlands, United States, Japan…) or monographically (André Masson, Emmanuel Saulnier, Guy Maddin, etc.).
