CALL FOR PAPERS: URBAN IDENTITIES, SPACE AND CONTEMPORARY ARTS

We proudly announce that CONTEMPART '16 / 5th International Contemporary Arts Conference will take place on MAY 26-27, 2016 in Istanbul and will be hosted by Cezayir Conference Halls.

CONTEMPART '16 is an annual multidisciplinary conference dedicated to study new approaches in contemporary arts worldwide. Contemporary arts will be focused on the basis of urban life and identities. Individual examples and tendencies dealing with urban identities will be discussed, while the transformation of cities and urban cultures will also be mentioned in terms of their share to shape the current scene of art in different places of the world.

Contemporary art, exclusively open to surprises and experiments, continues to be produced in various directions, to be consumed and be put forward ideas. Art continuously renews itself -from new materials to different means of communication, from interactive works to computer games, from new approaches about place to perceptional paradigms and problems of city and nature in the millennium, from new subjects to manifests.

CONTEMPART '16 Conference opens its doors to studies on contemporary arts related to urban identities representing different identities and tendencies and, of course, on theory of art.
