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.

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.
