Scope (Art & Design) is seeking papers for its 2019 issue.

Scope: Contemporary Research Topics (Art & Design) is peer-reviewed and published annually in November by Otago Polytechnic/Te Kura Matatini ki Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand. Scope (Art & Design) aims to engage discussion on contemporary research in the visual arts. It is concerned with views and critical debates surrounding issues of practice, theory, history and their relationships as manifested through the visual and related arts and activities, such as sound, performance, curation, tactile and immersive environments, digital scapes and methodological considerations. With New Zealand and its Pacific neighbours as a backdrop, but not its only stage, Scope (Art & Design) seeks to address the matters which concern contemporary artists and arts enquirers in their environments of practice. It is an open access journal available online here.

The word limit for a feature article is 4000 words (less for other formats). Formats include: articles; essays; artist’s pages, logs and travel reports; reviews of exhibitions, residencies and publications; moving and interactive works (to be negotiated with the editors for the online version, with contextualising paragraphs and stills to appear in the hardcopy version). Other suggested formats will also be considered.

Please send submissions to the editor. For further information or any questions about possible submissions please contact Pam McKinlay, Editorial Team Liaison, in the first instance. We are accepting submissions currently and the deadline for final copy is 30 May, 2019.

Kind regards,

Professor Leoni Schmidt
Editor, Scope: Art and Design
