In Australia, the artist’s engagement with the museum is traditionally regarded as having an important role in the colonial project but, as times have changed, the post-colonial viewpoint has come to the fore. The authors of Australian Artists and the Museum propose that the artists’ engagement has moved from politically informed critique taking place in museums of fine art, towards a critique of the creation of knowledge taking place in non-art museums, assuming new forms, including the artist acting as curator, art interventions that highlight the use of taxonomic modes of display and categorization, and the engagement with the aesthetics of collections to suggest different readings of objects and artefacts.

When the body is foregrounded in artwork – as in much contemporary performance, sculptural installation and video work – so is gendered and sexualised difference. Feminist Perspectives on Art: Contemporary Outtakes looks to interactions between art history, theory, curation, and studio-based practices to theorise the phenomenological import of this embodied gender difference in contemporary art. The essays in this collection are rooted in a wide variety of disciplines, including art-making, curating, and art history and criticism, with many of the authors combining roles of curator, artist and writer. This interdisciplinary approach enables the book to bridge the theory–practice divide and highlight new perspectives emerging from creative arts research. Fresh insights are offered on feminist aesthetics, women’s embodied experience, curatorial and art historical method, art world equity, and intersectional concerns. It engages with epistemological assertions of ‘how the body feels’, how the land has creative agency in Indigenous art, and how the use of emotional or affective registers may form one’s curatorial method. This anthology represents a significant contribution to a broader resurgence of feminist thought, methodology, and action in contemporary art, particularly in creative practice research. It will be of particular value to students and researchers in art history, visual culture, cultural studies, and gender studies, in addition to museum and gallery professionals specialising in contemporary art.

When, in 1966, Tate Adams opened Crossley Gallery in a lane off Bourke Street, Melbourne, he ioneered the importation of contemporary Japanese prints by masters such as Munakata and Sasajima. These were shown alongside those emerging local artist printmakers including at that time Fred Williams, Roger Kemp, George Baldessin, Bea Maddock and many others. This productive collision of cultures soon established the Crossley Gallery and its associated activities - such as the Crossley Print Workshop - as the hub of activity in this art form. The book contains memoirs of those associated with the Gallery and features prints shown or commissioned by Tate Adams - a leading printmaker himself. It provides first-hand insights into a previously under-examined aspect of the development of contemporary art in Australia. Also comes as a special edition with original wood engraving by Tate Adams, special cloth binding and a slip-case.
