UW-Green Bay to host first-of-its kind international art symposium

UW-Green Bay will host a first-of-its-kind event June 2-4, when Lawton Gallery Curator Stephen Perkins and a colleague from France present “The Territories of Artists’ Periodicals,” an international symposium, on campus. The event seeks to provide a venue for dialogue between researchers, artists, publishers, archivists, librarians and others interested in artists’ periodicals and the issues and themes that make up their contents. Artists’ periodicals differ from traditional art periodicals in that the periodical itself becomes the artistic medium, rather than being merely the site for the reproduction of artworks, Perkins said. Perkins’ co-organizer for the event is Marie Boivent of the Universite of Rennes, France, and attendees and presenters hail from Italy, the United Kingdom and across the U.S. The cost for the three-day symposium, the first of its kind devoted to artists’ periodicals in the U.S., is just $25.
