CineAction Issue #91: Art + Film

This issue seeks to investigate the many variations on the  
relationship between Art and Film inherent in the joining together of  
the two words, and welcomes all interests and approaches.

Some possible topics, such as ?Film as (an) Art (Form)? and ?the Art  
Film? have been much-discussed nodes of inquiry in film studies.  
Documentaries on Artists (Painters Painting, Never Sorry: Ai Weiwei,  
Gerhard Richter Painting) and Artist Biopics , old (Lust for Life, The  
Agony and the Ecstasy) and more recent (Basquiat, Pollock, Frida),  
have proved popular over the years in their attempts to find narrative  
drama in an artist?s life/technique/approach to art, or to merely find  
a way of presenting potentially difficult art to the general public.   
There are artist-made films, both experimental (Man Ray, Joseph  
Cornell, Andy Warhol), and those intended for commercial distribution  
(Robert Longo, David Salle, Julian Schnabel); and films like Banksy?s  
Exit through the Gift Shop which blur the boundaries. In addition,  
there are artists (Christian Marclay, Omer Fast, Pipilotti Rist,  
Shirin Neshat) who use the medium of film/video for gallery-installed  

  Papers should be submitted in hard copy, mailed directly to Susan  
Morrison, the editor of this issue. Once accepted for publication, the  
paper will then be emailed as a file attachment.
The deadline for submission is  May 15, 2013.  It would be appreciated  
if a brief proposal be submitted as early as possible as an indication  
of intention to submit.
A style guide is available on our website
