Symposium Series
Restarting serious discussion about art
Part of the mission of the Foundation for Centripetal Art is to restart vigorous discussion about the nature, purpose, meaning and importance of art. That discussion used to flourish in the United States as late as the 1950s, but it seems to have died out in the latter half of the twentieth century.

The Foundation develops templates for symposium programs and the templates are then “filled in” by the host institution. Presenters from the host institution identify the subjects they would like to address, and the Foundation supplies one or two additional speakers for each program.

The Foundation and GiottoMultimedia intend to publish papers given at these symposia, as papers worthy of publication are assembled.
Symposium Topics
The list of topics proposed so far:

Art as an Alternative to Religion
Art and its Context
The Role and Mission of the Artist
The Key Concepts of Centripetal Art
The First Symposium: Art and Authority
In Berkeley, Feb. 2010
The first symposium, dealing with Art and Authority, was actually held in February of 2010 at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California. Many different programs dealing with the same overall topic might be developed: the symposium held in February reflected the current interests of those particular speakers. A copy of the Program for the event is attached.
Art and Authority Program
The Second Symposium: Art and Religion
at UCLA - February 2011
A symposium on "Art and Religion" was held at UCLA on February 23, 2011, at 7-9 PM.
An exhibit of Junko's series, Concerning Art and Religion will run at the Dortort Art Center from January through April 7,2011.
Read all about it here.
Junko delivered a speech at the Symposium which was a declaration of radical but quiet revolution in both art and religion. Her speech is available as an eBook (just send us an email), and in essay form it will be published next year in a three-volume set from PRAEGER titled The Spirit of Revolution.
