This year will mark the inaugural publication of the "University of Toronto Art Journal." The journal publishes selected student papers from the Department of Art's annual graduate conference; the title of this year's conference was "Constructing Identities."
University Of Toronto Art Journal VOL. 2 explores issues of Space.
The third volume of the University of Toronto Art Journal includes three papers given originally at the Department of Art’s 2010 interdisciplinary graduate symposium, OUT OF SIGHT: Looking Beyond Seeing, a day spent examining experiences where sight was not the primary point of entry.
This volume embraces the complexity of artistic rebellion and its disseminators. We explore those visionaries who have used their chisels brushes, compasses, and video-cameras to affirm the value of resistance, even destruction, regardless of political outcome. A GUSTA Symposium held on January 27-28, 2011 invited graduate students to explore the dynamic methods in which nonconformist artistic practice could be considered subversive. How have artists defied cultural paradigms with their visual practice? What are the inherent, deliberate, and unforeseen repercussions of such creative protest? And how have these tidal waves of discord irrevocably changed public opinion and academic theory?
