The Rachofsky Collection Graduate Symposium

View Past Symposia

The Graduate Symposium is a natural out-growth of the goals of The Rachofsky Collection and The Warehouse. This symposium aims to highlight emerging scholars presenting new perspectives on postwar and contemporary art, and to make the collection available to a wider national and international academic audience. Graduate students and recent graduates are invited to present their research on artists and works from the collection.  As part of the program, students are given the opportunity to visit The Warehouse before the symposium to utilize our library and view works from the collection in person. Travel stipends ands accommodations available for research visit and symposium. Participants research will be included in an online compendium with the keynote speaker’s address.

Graduate Symposium 2023

November 10, 2023

At The Warehouse

The Rachofsky Collection announces an open call for submissions for its 2023 Graduate Symposium at The Warehouse Dallas on the theme of The Event with keynote speaker Dr. Jo Melvin, Professor of Fine Art & Feminisms, University of Arts London. Based on the ideas of British artist John Latham and the Least Event—the smallest moment or action after zero—this symposium will look at six different artists that resonate with Latham’s work through their ideas of time-space, the event, and the moment of creation in art and performance. Students are invited to submit their research on John Latham, Atsuko Tanaka, Giulio Paolini, Michelle Stuart, Shinro Ohtake, and Cheyney Thompson, with preferred focus on works within The Rachofsky Collection. Proposals are due by Wednesday, May 31, 2023.
