Local colour [Working title]
Issue 39: 1 | March 2019  

Your idea of red is not the same as mine. Ludwig Wittgenstein, Remarks on Colour

This issue takes a broad view of colour as an embodied medium, local to the eye and the mind. Proposals are encouraged that consider the diverse ways that contemporary artists work with colour and colour values as subjective, aesthetic and material propositions, responding to colour in nature and culture as readymade, real-world observations that muddy the symbolic register.

The future of art education
Issue 39: 3 | September 2019

At a time of change across the arts in education, the diversification of media and models for cultural production and community engagement through the arts, this edition looks to new perspectives on art education across the school and university sectors. Case studies include alternative models in art education, open-access learning, community practice, models of knowledge dissemination and the expanded role of art education programming in museums and galleries.

Despite the development of an Australian national curriculum in the arts at a school level, few states have adopted this in its entirety, reflecting different philosophical positioning on what is of core importance in art education across the states and territories. As arts education continues to transform across the sectors, new and interesting art movements are arising through emergent public pedagogy projects, continuing to push the boundaries and purpose of arts education.

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


Food Bowl
Issue 39: 4 | December 2019 [working title]

In times of plenty, scarcity, global rethinking of sustainable models for food production and consumption, this edition looks to ideas of the globe as food bowl and vessel. Proposals are encouraged that consider the ways that visual artists work with the food chain, agricultural production, the art of food, cooking and degustation.
