Optica, a centre for contemporary art presents "Messing with the New Art History: New Interdisciplinary Perspectives in Art History" from May 4th to 5th 1996. This conference gathers together seven scholars from across Canada who are broadly representative of new research directions in art History. All of these researches bring to their work new interdisciplinary perspective and have been chosen for this conference because their practice is particularly relevant to contemporary art. In some cases their choice of historical material and the terms of its analysis mirror concerns in contemporary art discourse and practice; in others contemporary art is the direct object of their research. The focus on perspectives sensitive o contemporary practice in the arts is a deliberate one. Current questioning of the traditional tenets and canons of art history, and the recontextualization and redefinition of the objects and methodologies appropriate to it, has been influenced by contemporary art production. In turn, new approaches in art history which include insights from, for example, feminism, post-structuralism, psychoanalysis, cultural theory and the social history of art, have had an obvious impact on artists.

The conference will be structured so as integrate Art History and Studio Art graduate students from the four Montreal Universities. The afternoon seminar mini-sessions will be co-ordinated by these graduate students who will lead the response to the formal papers presented in the morning.

For twenty-four years, Optica has sponsored a wide range of related activities including research, production, exhibition, curating, documentation, and publication. We look forward to stimulating contact between these provocative researchers and the local community of students and contemporary artists during this conference project.
