The Art and Psyche Conference is designed to engage the imaginative processes of psychotherapists of all kinds alongside members of the art community in order to creatively expand one’s understanding of depth psychology. Bringing together professionals from various fields creates an environment of cross-fertilization and the opportunity to experience psychology through painting, music, poetry, and literature as well as through psychological theories and clinical practices. The work of C. G. Jung, particularly through his vividly illustrated The Red Book, will offer a historical backdrop that continues to inspire artists and psychotherapists individually and collectively.
Conference presentations revolve around the theme of “The Illuminated Imagination” which refers to The Red Book that many liken to a medieval manuscript. Through The Red Book, it is possible to see the unfolding of one person’s psychological journey with relevance for the process of individuation today and into our shared future. In The Red Book artists have discovered inspiration in developing creative productions and psychotherapists have found a depth of meaning and guidance in the day-to-day practice of clinical work. The conference itself will function as an emergent community through the interaction of the participants in large group plenaries, performances, small group break-outs, and workshops. It is our experience from three previous conferences that such interactions have a synergistic and enlivening effect on all who attend.
As a result of attending this program, participants will:
Be able to articulate an understanding of depth psychology in dialogue with the arts and artistic imagination.
Understand ways in which depth psychological methods, particularly arts-based methods, assist in the practice of psychotherapy.
Consider how the use of C.G. Jung’s method of “active imagination” may be used in psychotherapy, in personal growth, and in artistic practice.
Learn the value of the reflective function within large and small group processes as it unfolds throughout the course of the conference.
Deepen an understanding of the meaning and value of dreams in psychotherapy and in creating art.
Consider the importance of individual dreams and the significance of dreams within groups through daily Social Dreaming Matrices.
Consider the many ways of knowing one’s self through body, mind, emotion, brain and various art forms along with the natural world.
Sonu Shamdasani Keynote Presentation by The Red Book editor, professor, scholar and historian of psychology
Jung’s Visual Turn
The years from 1915 onwards could be characterized as Jung’s ‘visual turn,’ in which he articulated his fantasies into a symbolic, visual iconography, while also attempting to develop a hermeneutic by which this could be understood. His understanding of the psychological significance of his own images in turn formed the key through which he came to read and interpret cross-cultural symbolism. This talk looks at the co-constitution of the exoteric science of complex psychology and Jung’s hidden visual iconography.
Ann Taves and Craig Stephenson Jung, the Illuminated Imagination, and Visionary Experience
Panel discussion featuring noted scholars in dialogue, including audience Q&A:
Guiding Presences and the Emergence of Analytic Psychology as a New Psycho-Spiritual Path
Jung stands in a psychological tradition that was premised on a dissociative understanding of the self and intensely interested in ‘automatisms,’ i.e., “co-activecenter[s] of autonomy” that existed alongside the primary self. In early 1913, shortly after his break with Freud, Jung did something that Janet, James, Flournoy, and others in this tradition did not do. He embarked on a period of inner exploration in which he entered into his dreams and fantasies through a process that – in effect – allowed seemingly real “secondary personalities” to emerge through a process he later called “active imagination.” This talk will consider Jung not as “psychologist of religion,” but as the founder of a new psycho-spiritual movement, who like other founding figures, was guided by “presences,” resisted his “calling,” interacted with close associates who facilitated the process, and ultimately chose to position the new path as a process of transformation that – he argued – lay at the heart many other traditions.
Jung reading Gérard de Nerval’s Aurélia
The French Romantic poet Gérard de Nerval explored the irrational with lucidity and exquisite craft, and C. G. Jung regarded those explorations as a work of “extraordinary magnitude.” During the years of his greatest creativity, Nerval suffered from madness, for which he was institutionalized eight times. Eventually, at the request of his physician, he wrote his visionary memoir Aurélia in an ambivalent attempt to emerge from these psychotic episodes. In Aurélia, Nerval acknowledges the value of his medical treatment and, at the same time, asserts that his doctor’s psychiatric strategies and scientific vocabulary relegate his visionary convictions and his inner voice to a mental illness from which he may be released only through atonement. He published the first part of Aurélia in La Revue de Paris in January 1855. The second part and then the entire book were published posthumously in that same year. Almost a century later, in 1945, Jung delivered a lecture on Aurélia at the Psychological Club in Zürich. In his lecture, Jung pondered why Nerval was not able to make use of his visionary experiences in his own life. At the same time, Jung emphasized the validity of Nerval’s visions, attempting to differentiate a psychology of a work of art separate from the psychology of the artist.
SEEKING WHOLENESS: An Opening Reception and Gallery Exhibition featuring the Works of Mary Conover from 5:10 pm-6:30 pm at the College of Creative Studies (Just a few steps from the Corwin Center.)
All conference participants and the general public are invited to this celebratory event. Mary will be available to sign copies of her book The Alchemy of Light.
On display at UCSB College of Creative Studies
This exhibition will be open to the public from April 6th until April 28th
In summary: This exhibition of works by artist Mary Conover, will explore the creative imagination and artistic evolution of a practicing artist. Mary Conover will present works in various media and experimental formats, including painting, collage, photography and digital photomontage. A selection of the artist’s notebooks and a short video will document her work and that of her grand- mother synthesizing scientific and spiritual inquiry with a passion for exploration of the natural world. Through her process of investigation and discovery, the potential for individual transformation through art unfolds. Mary will be available for signing copies during this exciting experience during the gallery tour and reception and the show will be open to the general public

Unearthing Jung’s Visual Work: An Inside Report from 20 years of Research
C.G. Jung’s life was deeply entrenched in visual work and thinking. However, he published very few images of his visual work during his lifetime. Accordingly his creative output remained scantily documented in the edition of the Collected Works. His memoir (Memories, Dreams, Reflections) mentions a number of objects but without reproductions. Consequently, Jung’s artistic oeuvre and its significance for his lifework fell into oblivion for a considerable number of years. Ulrich Hoerni in 1993 began to pick up the pieces of this lost treasure, tracing the whereabouts and the history of Jung’s rich creative legacy. The project of inventorying and re-constructing the remaining corpus of Jung’s visual works in many aspects resembled the assembly of an unknown jigsaw puzzle of a lot of small pieces of text and visual sources. Based on concrete examples, this presentation will demonstrate what questions, problems and surprises the quest for the identification and classification of the objects brought, and what principles were applied when presenting this material in the publication of The Art of C.G. Jung.

New Discoveries on Jung and the Arts
With the exhibition at the Venice Biennale in 2013, Jung’s The Red Book has gained wide recognition in the world of art. The facsimile edition first published in 2009 and subsequent books and articles that have come into the literature by a host of Jungians have made transparent the psychological wealth of the experiment that was at the source of Jung’s lifework. At the same time, it still remained largely unknown to what extent the man who never wanted to be considered an artist drew on an in-depth knowledge and engagement with the history and contemporary context of the arts. Research for The Art of C.G. Jung has shown that Jung, in fact, was an ardent collector of prints and cut-outs from art magazines, and had studied literature on the history of art to a much broader extent than previously known. While mostly remembered for his critical stance towards the abstract and object-dissolving styles in modern arts, Jung actually drew on the very same sources and stylistic influences from world art as those he so strongly criticized. In light of these new findings, the imaging of Jung as simply rejecting of modern art in general needs correction, and his own visual oeuvre can be placed alongside some of the very avant-garde of his time.
More than Art: Discovering Jung’s Mediums, Techniques and Creative Process
The art mediums Jung used and the contexts in which he created awaited research after The Red Book facsimile was released. Jill Mellick went in search of these. Andreas Jung and Jost Hoerni worked closely with her. With help from the Foundation for the Works of C.G. Jung, the Bollingen Foundation, and Jost Hoerni, samples of pigments and infinitesimal paint flakes from The Red Book allowed a conservation scientist to establish that Jung had used his exquisite pigments (still at the Tower at Bollingen) for The Red Book, not just for wall paintings. Huge magnifications of DigitalFusion’s original scans of The Red Book permitted close study of Jung’s painting and calligraphy techniques. Jung’s approach to his use of many mediums across his lifespan reflects his commitment and ability to both surrender to and skillfully use challenging materials. While he did, indeed, create unique art, he engaged in the process as a form of contemplation in order to explore his inner world. The result is, indeed, more than art.

Mary Dougherty Illuminating Your Own Creative Imagination: An Experiential Workshop
This Pre-Conference Workshop is Sold Out!
9:30 am – 12:30 pm. Includes lunch. Hosted at Pacifica’s Ladera Lane Campus.
Informed by Jung’s theory of active imagination and his practice of the image, this experiential workshop will enable participants to deepen their own active imaginal attitude in relationship to unconscious content, as it emerges within their own creative practice – analytic, academic or artistic. Using journal writing and image making exercises, participants will evoke an imaginal play space within which they can access and make use of their own emotional states and bodily sensations to connect to and release emerging psychic conditions into expressive forms. Within this created space, participants will further explore the function of their creative practice within their own lives as well as the ways their creative practice functions to enrich the life of their community. Participants will be invited to carry forward their active imaginal attitude into the Art and Psyche Conference IV in order to receive and embody ideas and intuitions sparked by their experiences of “The Illuminated Imagination.”
1:30 pm – 4:00 pm

MUSEUM EXHIBIT: ILLUMINATED IMAGINATION: THE ART OF C.G. JUNG
On Display at UCSB’s Art, Design & Architecture Museum, January 12 – April 28, 2019 and throughout the conference. (Just a few steps from the Corwin Center, the conference venue)
Exhibit Overview This exhibition contains the majority of Jung’s artistic oeuvre, as well as many of his manuscripts and art books with annotations by Jung himself. It presents, for the first time, Jung’s original Red Book and his own drawings and sculptures within the context of his theories and the world of art they drew from.
Exhibit Description Carl Jung is best known for his fundamental contributions to our understanding of the human psyche. Throughout his experiences and discoveries the role of the visual arts was critical. While never calling himself an artist, he integrated painting, sculpting and even building as part of his long life. His most astonishing creation was The Red Book, a book he illustrated and hand-wrote in the manner of a medieval manuscript. This fascination with the Middle Ages began with his earliest childhood drawings of castles and continued to the tower of Bollingen, the retreat he designed and built on the shores of Lake Zurich. Early on, he painted landscapes filled with a transcendental longing that would imbue his mature analytical work. Jung was also well-versed in the conventional tastes of his day; but his vision quickly grew to include art from around the world and throughout time: ancient Assyrian reliefs, African sculpture, Native American Zuni dolls, Tibetan mandalas. Jung additionally knew many of the Dada artists who made their home in Zurich, but for Jung symbolic content was always of paramount importance.
MUSEUM EXHIBIT: THE ALCHEMY OF LIGHT
On Display at UCSB’s Mountain Gallery, January 15 – June 15, 2019
Exhibit Description This exhibition of paintings by Mary Conover investigates and sheds light on the connections between personal transformation, psychology and art. It details the story of Conover’s artistic journey and that of her grandmother Mary Conover Mellon who founded the Bollingen Series of books. Conover Mellon started the Bollingen Series with the intent to publish the complete works of Jung. Through Mary’s work, one can identify many ideas she inherited, consciously or subconsciously, from her grandmother.
Mary Conover grew up with major books by Jung surrounding her — on dreams, archetypes, yoga, art and alchemy. Much of what Mary considers to be her own personal alchemy occurs through the act of painting, which she sees as a transformative process, not only of materials but of her own spirit and psyche too. Her work can be viewed as an ongoing study of light, which is for her, a study of the self and the psyche.
This exhibition is focused on the story of the Bollingen Series and its influence on a modern contemporary artist.
