Twenty years after the death of E. A.

The International symposium on and from Edgardo Antonio Vigo convenes to discuss and reflect on the legacy of the artist, considering specific aspects of his production, as well as possible projections of these issues in contemporary art.

We welcome paper submissions that address, but are not limited to, the following themes:

  • Artists networks, creation networks, diffusion networks. Nature of networks. Networks, circuits, corridors, constellations, weaves. Image and word shifting in networks and circuits.

  • Collaboration, complementarity and interdiscipline. Art critics and artists in collaborative projects. Artists couples, shared creation. Critical practices on and in artistic languages. Interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary and multidisciplinary practices. Critique of specialization and utopias of transversality.

Image/word hybrid devices (dispositifs).
