*Call for Papers: Art of Haiti, 1940s to the Present*

*College Art Association Annual Conference, Los Angeles*

*Wednesday, February 21 – Saturday, February 24, 2018*

*Deadline for proposals: August 14, 2017*

Chair(s): Lizabeth Paravisini-Gebert, Vassar College,
liparavisini at vassar.edu;

Terri Geis, Fowler Museum, University of California, Los Angeles,

The art of Haiti and the Haitian diaspora in the twentieth and twenty-first
centuries has been the subject of multiple exhibitions and accompanying
publications over the last six years, including “Kafou: Haiti, Art and
Vodou” (Nottingham Contemporary, 2012), “In Extremis: Death and Life in
21st Century Haitian Art” (Fowler Museum at UCLA, 2013), and “Haiti: Deux
siècles de creation artistique” (Grand Palais, 2015). Significant historic
works of Haitian art have been exhibited outside of a geographical
framework in multiple international contexts, including Vodou flags within
the Encyclopedic Palace of the Venice Biennale in 2013, and the work of
André Pierre in documenta 14 in 2017. With this increased dialogue around
and international exposure of Haitian art, new opportunities exist for
long-needed advanced scholarship, as well as critique of display strategies
and international circulation. This panel seeks proposals that deepen the
genealogical work on Haitian artists from the 1940s to the present, examine
their historic and contemporary connections to international art movements,
and explore historic and recent exhibition strategies. Papers that examine
significant themes within the art of Haiti, such as colonial and
imperialist histories and environmental critique, or offer analysis of the
production and consumption of religious objects within contemporary market
economies are also welcome.

*Submissions should follow the general guidelines for participants as
detailed in the 2018 CAA Call for Participation:
