Visual Arts Practice and Affect : Place, Materiality and Embodied Knowing, Hardback Book

Visual Arts Practice and Affect : Place, Materiality and Embodied Knowing Hardback

Edited by Ann Schilo

Part of the Place, Memory, Affect series


Visual Arts Practice and Affect brings together a group of artist scholars to explore how visual arts can offer unique insights into the understanding of place, memory and affect. Each contributor highlights the crucial role the creative arts play in envisaging new perspectives on the making of meaning, ones that are grounded in the practicalities, materialities and embodied knowing of artistic practice.

Art offers other ways of seeing, thinking, understanding the world.

It can be very messy, very challenging, but also moving, exquisite, astounding.

The book opens a space for experiential appreciation by offering a writing that allows both the writer and the reader to consider those sorts of embodied sensibilities
