Call for Papers: 

What Is the “Spiritual” in Art-Making? What is the "Mystical" in Art-Making?
Contact person: Jeff Brackett -
This panel welcomes papers on the question of how and why artists and art professionals deploy the hotly contested term “spiritual” when referring to visual artists, their artmaking, and art. What is the "mystical?" How has the "mystical" been experienced, enacted or expressed in artistic forms? How do the spiritual and the mystical interact with one another?
