Art and Psyche
Art and Psyche, 2008
Art and Psyche, 2008, held in San Francisco, revolved around the mutual influence of the visual arts and psychoanalysis, especially Jungian analysis. At the conference, members of the analytic/psychotherapy and art/art history communities explored Jungian-inspired notions of psyche and its visual representations as it manifests in artistic expressions emergent both in the studio and in the consulting room. Common to all was the centrality of image. We are pleased to present a growing collection of papers from the conference.
