New Futures in Art Education

Cover of New Futures in Art Education

Artlink has not only set a standard of readability that is exceptional in the field. It has stood firmly against temptations that much of the comparable literature has found irresistible. One of the most insidious of these is the invitation to embrace the artworld’s profitable association with the dealership system and the art market. Another is the pressure to acquiesce in a conception of its role as the public relations arm of the culture industry.

Editors: Maria Bilske is a researcher, arts writer and visual arts educator. Belinda MacGill is a lecturer and researcher in arts education at the University of South Australia.

At a time of change and diversification of the models for cultural production, this edition embraces new perspectives on visual art education across the school, university, museum and gallery sectors. Inspired by the clustering of debates and fluctuating drivers positioning art education in particular ways right now, the essays presented here are pluralistic in their views, reflecting a world-centred approach to the public education debate.
