Announcing Project Awe’s partnership
with The Representational Art Conference

Project Awe has formed an exciting partnership with The Representational Art Conference 2019, taking place in Ventura, California 31st March – 4th April 2019.

Project Awe is sponsoring a session of academic papers at the conference with a focus upon esoteric art. The papers may be on any aspect of esoteric art including allegorical symbolism, alchemical symbolism, magical art, esoteric art history, tarot, and so on.

The principle theme of this year’s TRAC is the relationship between imagination and representational art.

In esoteric art the imaginative decisions of the artist guide viewers toward secrets or private meanings. Allegorical imagery is both an imaginative and practical solution to conveying hidden meaning. Consequently, we are especially interested in papers that examine esoteric imagery within representational art. Project Awe’s presence as a partner with The Representational Art Conference 2019 (TRAC) helps to bring us deeper into the academic art world. TRAC is the premier international scholarly event focused on cutting-edge representational art in the 21st century.

There are very few academic venues providing space for the discussion of esoteric art. TRAC seeks to address this lack and to provide a place where papers examining this fertile and exciting area are treated with respect and encouragement.

Scholars who are interested in submitting a paper may find more information at The Representational Art Conference website.

Deadline for submissions: January 15th 2019
