Writing With Images


Writing With Images: An Art Symposium (with moderated discussion of ‘Image Critique and the Fall of the Berlin Wall’). University Galleries, Illinois State University (ISU Center for Visual Arts Building), 22 April 2011.

A Graduate Research Symposium, Writing With Images,  was held at the University Galleries, Illinois State University. Image Critique and the Fall of the Berlin Wall (Manghani, 2008) was adopted as a key text informing the theme of the symposium.

Presentations and debates considered what is might mean to write with images or to allow images to ‘speak for themselves’. As the symposium literature states: ‘To date, no local attempt has been made to draw different strands of inquiry together to identify specific qualities of image critique for image analysis and its relation to current theories and concepts’. Thus the event sought to ‘address the deficit by considering theoretical and visual considerations that have to be taken into account in order to engage with image critique, and revise our visual and written perspectives about art.’
