Written by Dr Ann Schilo, Dr Susanna Castleden, Dr Thea Costantino, Dr Anna Nazzari and Dr Anna Sabadini from Curtin University’s School of Design and Art, each contributor highlights the crucial role the visual arts play in the creation of new meanings; ones that are grounded in the practicalities, materialities and embodied knowing of artistic practice.

The launch coincides with Perth International Arts Festival and Fremantle Arts Centre exhibition, SPAN, that brings together five WA artists whose work engages with similar questions concerning the margins between personal and global, political and geographical relationships.
