Deadline: February 28, 2011; please send T-R-A-C-E-S application to


INTER-FORMAT Symposium: Reinventing Interdisciplinarity > adapting to the
future (part of the project):
May 3-6, 2011, Nida/Vilnius.

Deadline: February 28, 2011; please send your proposals for contributions

The symposiumâs goal is to gather artists, curators, researchers and
practitioners and reinvent the format of presenting and sharing art,
knowledge and experience. One of the key features of contemporary culture
is the changing role of the artist, who sometimes assumes the role of a
researcher and curator, and vice versa. Where are the borders of these
roles? How could a serious researcher and theorist do a performance, and
how could a playful artist do serious research and theorize?

One of the key question of Symposium is âSustainable Eco/nomies/logies:
Adapting to the Futureâ which covers new ways of collaboration between
artists&curators&researchers, looking for new formats in order to adapt to
the new conditions of changing art world, institutions and audiences.

The symposium in Nida is going to be an ongoing performance with lectures,
discussions, presentations, coffee/wild herbal tea drinking circles,
dinner with conceptual sentiments (to everybodyâs health),
eco-minimal-media events, audio-lobby, imaginary mapping, smell
sightseeing, etc. We are looking forward to contributions that offer an
engaging format of participation and rethink interdisciplinary practices
between art, research, theory & curatorship, as well as inter-roles
between artists, researchers, curators and theorists/critics. Some grants
for travel expenses available.
