This conference will look at the relationship between literature and art, specifically visual artists who incorporate literary sources into their work. We are interested in how these interventions put pressure on the practice of art history, and how they provoke a reconsideration of methodologies of visual analysis. Thinking with, for example, the art of Elaine Reichek and Nancy Spero, we would also like to consider the place of citational practices within the broader context of postmodernism.
