Abstracts are invited on the following theme:
Creation and re-creation in the visual arts and architecture.
Many artifacts, works of art, and buildings created in some past era – historical or recent – have been altered, redesigned, or copied to acquire a new form and meaning that retain or deny their reference to the past.
The focus of your research should be the origin, meaning, or function of a work or object that has acquired either a physical transformation or has been emulated in a new form. Both the past and present or later context of the artifact, work of art, or building should be critically examined and evaluated.
The first twelve abstracts received that conform to the above requirement will be accepted.
The themes of proposed abstracts should conform to the range of subjects published
