Creative Collaboration in Art Practice, Research, and Pedagogy

Editor(s): M. Kathryn Shields, Sunny Spillane
Contributors: Jack Wood, Sunny Spillane, Scott Betz, Margarita Benitez, Markus Vogl, Cynthia Ling Lee, Jeff Schmuki,

Book Description

This collection reflects current and nuanced discussions of the ways collaboration and participation meaningfully inform the production, study, and teaching of art with innovative and unexpected results. It illustrates how the shifting boundaries of power, position, and identity, between domains of knowledge and collaborative participants, result in new relationships.

The chapters in this book share stories applicable or relevant to readers’ own classrooms, art practice, or scholarship. As such, it directly appeals to college professors of studio art and design, art history, and art education, as well as to artists, scholars, and teachers who work collaboratively. It may also draw readership from business professionals seeking critical thinkers and creative problem solvers to energize their industries. The volume will inspire conversations about the ways relationships become crucial for construction, reception and display; meaning and power; design, content, and action.
