Co-Editors, Artlink Indigenous GLOBAL
This Indigenous edition of Artlink - the sixth - is driven by the need to widen the reach, the retinal surface, the eyeline, of the magazine to include investigations into the largely undocumented recent history of cultural exchange between Indigenous populations here and overseas, of intercultural dialogues about colonialism and the global environment, the 'reframing' of world culture to include Indigenous perspectives and the transnationalism that underpins so much artistic production today.
Issue 35:3 | September 2015 PERFORMATIVE
The term ‘performative’ has crept into the vocabulary of the visual arts from its origins in the philosophy of language as speech acts. Calling objects or situations into being as a performative, enabling gesture has become a regular strategy for makers and doers of art.
In this edition, we profile artists working with dance and performance to broadly canvas ideas of the social in contemporary art.
