Centro Studi Opera Omnia Luigi Boccherini (Lucca)
14-16 November 2014
Lucca, Complesso Monumentale di San Micheletto
CALL FOR PAPERS
The Centro Studi Opera Omnia Luigi Boccherini of Lucca is pleased to invite submissions of proposals for the symposium «Music and Figurative Arts in the Twentieth Century», to be held in Lucca, Complesso Monumentale di San Micheletto, from Friday 14 until Sunday 16 November 2014.
The relationship between music and figurative arts during the twentieth century is encoded in the links that exist between various composers and artists (such as Schönberg and Kandinsky, Stravinsky and Marino Marini or Picasso, and so forth), and particularly in the personal experiences of composers who produced graphic scores (namely Bussotti, Guaccero and Cage); the connections extend to installation art.
The present conference aims to explore this multifaceted world and will focus on artistic movements and political-sociological phenomena, including musical iconography associated with totalitarian regimes of the twentieth century.
The programme committee encourages submissions within the following areas, although other topics are also welcome:
The official languages of the conference are English, French and Italian. Papers selected at the conference will be published in a miscellaneous volume.
Papers are limited to twenty minutes in length, allowing time for questions and discussion. Please submit an abstract of no more than 500 words and one page of biography.
All proposals should be submitted by email no later than ***Sunday 6 April 2014*** to <firstname.lastname@example.org>. With your proposal please include your name, contact details (postal address, e-mail and telephone number) and (if applicable) your affiliation.
The committee will make its final decision on the abstracts by the end of May 2014, and contributors will be informed immediately thereafter. Further information about the programme, registration, travel and accommodation will be announced after that date.
