Looking at the Journal for Artistic Research

As we are researching ways of getting defiant objects into a repository type setting, it is part of my job to look at how artistic research outputs are being handled by other people. This journal states that it is an “international, online, Open Access and peer-reviewed journal for the identification, publication and dissemination of artistic research and its methodologies, from all arts disciplines.” so it should be worth a look.

It doesn’t have articles, it has ‘expositions’, which are presented in a way which can take a bit of getting used to, as they are not necessarily linear, but there is some interesting stuff here, and some beautiful artwork, such as Mr. Dodge: The Bibliography Raincoat by Sarah Alford. The research and background to these artworks is as important to capture and showcase as the works themselves.  I will be interested to see what metadata are being used for these expositions on the accompanying Research Catalogue.
