Dallas, Texas, November 8, 2019

Deadline: April 30, 2019


The Rachofsky Collection announces an open call for submissions related to Japanese artist Jiro Takamatsu (1936-1998) for its 2019 Graduate Symposium at The Warehouse in Dallas, Texas. As an artist, teacher, and theorist, Takamatsu investigated the philosophical and material foundations of art in a variety of media, engaging with Minimalism through his background in Anti-Art and Neo-Dada. Takamatsu was a key member of the collective Hi Red Center (1963-1964) and of the movement Mono-Ha (1967-1979), and influential in developing conceptual art, performance art, and post-minimalism within Japan.


Students invited to present papers at the symposium will have the opportunity to access works in the collection during a two-day, partially-funded research visit during Summer 2019. Additionally, papers presented at the symposium will be published in a compendium together with the paper delivered by the keynote speaker, independent curator and writer Douglas Fogle.


We invite master’s and doctoral students to present their scholarly work on a host of topics related to Jiro Takamatsu. Paper presentations should be 20 minutes in length. Complete proposals must include the following:

·        A complete mailing address, email address, phone number, research field, and university affiliation of participant.

·        Paper title and abstract of no more than 300 words that includes three to five keywords.
