Papers:Since its launch in April 2009, Art&Education Papers has published scholarly articles addressing broad range of concerns from a reconsideration of Michael Fried’s Art and Objecthood, to first hand account of recuperation and suppression UK avant-garde magazine Icteric, time travel and photographic negatives, to investigations in curating public art practice.

Recent Papers:

Chet Domitz’ Mary Heilmann’s Horizon locates the biographical imprint of coastal geographies on the artist’s approach to painting. As Heilmann redefines painting as performance, there is a further investigation to be made in terms of how the horizon becomes constituted as social object. This text look at a discursive history that would equate the horizon with a type of community forged through longing and distance.

Yesomi Umolu’s The Void as Dedication: Proceeding From a Space of Transgression to Veneration, in the seminal curatorial anthology What makes a Great Exhibition?

It does so by looking specifically at how the ‘space or architecture’ of an exhibition is conceptualized in artistic, curatorial and institutional practices and their subsequent limitations.
