Proposals due: February 28, 2011
Over the last 2 decades, a lively discussion has developed about the relationship between art and research. The roles of the professional artist and the professional researcher have come closer to one another and often merged in fruitful ways. The new institutional connection between research and art/design has promoted much discussion concerning how reflecting and making may be combined in productive ways.
A special issue of the Journal of Research Practice (JRP) will focus on artistic research practice, drawing attention to the process of expressing, performing, creating, inventing, in short, reflecting and making, in the process of art and research. The special issue will cover the overlapping area between art and research. It will give a platform to artists who are exposing some form of inquiry within the context of their art practice.
