Keynote presentation by José Esteban Muñoz, Professor and Chair of Performance Studies, New York University
“Alt,” neither a word nor a prefix in the grammatical sense, has nevertheless been a generative concept in contemporary interrogations of non-normative ways of engaging with and inhabiting the world. Various contemporary artists, practitioners, and performers have begun to investigate the meaning, value, and application of “alt” by entertaining questions of alterities, alternations, and alternatives as they come to define our existence.
Northeastern University’s English Graduate Student Association is seeking artists whose work explores or utilizes the notions of alterity and alternatives with regard to subjects, materials, or processes. All 2-D works are welcome, as are 3-D works which may be hung on a wall.
Submissions should include an image of the work, the title, media, dimensions, and artist’s contact information.
Please email all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than February 1.
