Call for Papers (deadline 4 July 2022) for
Conference November 2-4, 2022
'NATURE - ARTS interconnections'
organised by Faculty of Arts and Design Timisoara
Call for papers:
The conference is open to researchers and visual artists who work on the ways in which nature in
its various forms is present in visual arts. Nature has always been in the attention of artists, offering
subjects for portrayal at the time when arts were mainly representational, providing a model for
creation, being a source of inspiration, or standing as a value to be defended and protected
against the nowadays global threats such as pollution or global warming. Deeply admired or
thoroughly investigated, in the same time appropriated and transfigured in the act of creation,
nature is today as relevant as always for visual arts.
The conference aims at looking at the multiplicity of ways in which artists involved nature in the
artistic processes and their works. Possible topics could include: experimental creative research in
natural or urban landscape, artist's relationship with nature through interventions such as land art,
scenarios of nature’s ruin and interpretations from an ecological perspective.
Papers presenting theoretical research results and presentations of artistic research are equally
