Arts and Genesis

September 30 – October 1, 2010
School of the Arts, Media and Culture
Trinity Western University, Langley, British Columbia, Canada

Debate over the nature of artistic creation has, at times, rivaled and paralleled debates about the creation of the world. This conference seeks to explore the web of topics surrounding the term genesis, including: the generation of artistic theory and praxis; the origin of art as a concept; the nativity of individual art works; and the creative process.
