Selected papers from last year’s AAANZ conference ‘Inter-Discipline’ have been published.
From the preface:
‘Inter-discipline’ was the annual conference of the Art Association of Australia and New Zealand, held at Melbourne from 7 – 9 December 2013. The conference was hosted by the University of Melbourne (VCA and Art History), the National Gallery of Victoria and RMIT and included sessions on the history of art and other visual arts disciplines, art theory, and practice-based research in art, design and architecture. The conference, of which this publication forms the proceedings, focused on the theme of interdisciplinarity and invited participants to explore the past, present and future of art, including its practices, threats and histories. The theme aimed to encourage critical perspectives that challenged the term ‘inter-disciplinary’ and brought together a broad set of practitioners, independent scholars, interdisciplinary artists, curators, museum educators, students and higher degree researchers across the fields of Architecture, Design, Art, Art History and Theory, Curatorship and Museum Studies, who addressed key issues of concern and highlighted points of intersection between disciplines.
