Over the last three years, I have been conducting an extensive literature review to gather material on and about women artists. With the exception of the dedicated feminist arts journal LIP (1976-84), Artlink gives the most consistent and comprehensive coverage of Australian women artists. As a researcher looking at the last fifty years of art practice in Australia, Artlink’s themed issues have been extremely valuable.

Thriving on the promise of instant accessibility fostered by digital media, and on the erosion of the boundaries between the public and the private, this edition looks to ideas of portraiture in the expanded field. Through the appraisal of a range of practices across contemporary art and film, it examines the social, cultural, technological and material processes at work in the construction of the self.
