Online art exhibition to accompany ‘GeoHumanities’ journal
The AAG’s newest journal, GeoHumanities, launched in 2015, is not only an exciting new forum for interdisciplinary scholarship at the intersection of geography and the humanities. It also provides the space for publishing more creative work which crosses over between the academy and practice.
The “Practices and Curations” section of each issue features a range of work not in traditional academic manuscript format. Pieces include poems, visual essays, commentaries on art installations and exhibitions, short stories, collaborations between academics and artists, and biographic reflections.
Some of the artists and arts-practicing geographers whose work has been published in the Practices and Curations section of journal are now featured on a new website: the GeoHumanities Online Art Exhibition.
Each artist’s profile consists of a selection of images, a description the artistic projects that they are drawn from, and a short biography.
Together, these illustrate how core geographic concepts such as place, space, landscape, scale, and mapping now permeate the arts, and how the broader imaginative reinterpretation of these concepts has in turn led to a renaissance of creativity in geography.
Journal editors, Tim Cresswell and Deborah Dixon say, “We want AAG members to engage with the authors of GeoHumanities pieces from another perspective; one that foregrounds some of the wonderful visuals that the authors have produced, and that offers more insight into their creative process.”
More artists will be profiled in the GeoHumanities Online Art Exhibition as each issue of the journal is published, so please visit the website regularly to see the new content.
