Email: meyer_walter@smc.eduarthistsocal@gmail.com
November 3rd- Location TBD

CAA NYC- February 2019
Over the last 5 years, there has been hype about the impending “blockchain revolution.” Utopian and dystopian thinking alike characterize these emergent technologies across society and we seek to facilitate conversations specific to the disciplines of art, aesthetics and history.

Possible topics might include: using blockchains for provenance, authentication of digital works as well as certificates of ownership, art that is about block chains and artists discussing bitcoins and block chains as subjects not using block chains themselves, art and artists that utilizes blockchain technology, use of cryptocurrencies for acquisition and subsequent effect on art marketplace.

What will blockchains mean for artists, scholars and professionals and how might they affect our disciplines? This panel seeks submissions which engage and theorize the ways in which the study of art, art history and visual culture will be affected by the challenges and opportunities these new systems of exchange bring.

Please submit one-page proposals and CV to meyer_walter@smc.edu &  arthistsocal@gmail.com  by August 6th, 2018.

Those selected will be notified by August 20th.

Presenters at the November 3rd conference will be invited to be a part of the round table follow-up with the same theme at the College Art Association’s Annual Conference in New York City in February of 2019..
