Shifting Structures of Innovation: Mina Loy, Visual Culture, and the Avant-Garde (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Shifting Structures of Innovation: Mina Loy, Visual Culture, and the Avant-Garde
Author: Susan Rosenbaum, Linda Kinnahan, Irene Gammel, Alex Goody, Susan Dunn, Suzanne Churchill
Abstract: This roundtable proposes to shift our understanding of modernist “structures of innovation” through a focus on what Peter Middleton calls an "intersubjective network,” e.g. the “author” considered as the crux of a number of social and aesthetic performances and institutions. Mina Loy (1882-1966) provides our network: a poet, novelist, painter, fashion designer, lampshade maker, and gallery agent, she lived in London, Munich, Paris, Florence, Mexico, and New York, associating with writers and artists connected to Art Nouveau, cubism, futurism, dada, surrealism, and abstract expressionism. With the conference theme in mind, the roundtable will position Mina Loy as the center of a "structure of innovation" as a means of illuminating that structure from an altered perspective. Each participant will consider Loy in relation to a particular visual artist, movement, or institution in the visual arts, with the aim of using this connection to engage larger questions about gender and sexuality, the relationship between different media, and the history of the avant-garde. Although Loy is our starting point, we do not consider this roundtable a “single-author” conversation; rather, Loy’s work and connections to a variety of avant-garde movements will help us to map new constellations of artists, and to generate new ways of thinking about modernism and visual culture.
