Vol. 14 No. 2 (2020): re-siting studio practices
Studios are inherently practice oriented sites that evoke and invite intercultural, sociomaterial, technological and integrative connections. This edition of JACE invited authors to consider place, site and space in ways that contribute to artistic and creative education. To do this we have curated 2 issues of Volume 14 2020 to explore this special edition more fully and to open definitions of the studio as a site of and for artistic or creative practice. That is, we take artistic and creative practices (social and material, human and nonhuman) to be the defining characteristics of a studio, not its physical features.
This opens up the possibility for re-siting the studio in different places, spaces and cultures post-2020 in a new COVID-normal.
Our intention was to prompt authors to trouble conventional notions of studio practice and consider the implications of this for artistic and creative education - with these implications potentially being ethical, political, cultural, social, and/or material.
