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.

Living in a time of the greatest mass migration of displaced people the world has ever known, this issue responds to ideas of human flow, trade and transit in the information age, and the role of artists as social agents, antagonists and radicants. The focus is on contemporary art from China, South Asia and the Pacific, and is loosely conceived as a response to the presentation of work at the 2018 Biennale of Sydney by Ai Weiwei addressing the global refugee crisis.
