The second edition of the d ɪˈv a n | A Journal of Accounts has been launched at Sydney Contemporary 2017 and will now feature at the Istanbul's IKSV bienal and at Dhaka Art Summit in early 2018.
Conceived to offer critical interpretations of contemporary visual art and its broader art historical, theoretical and socio-political contexts, d ɪˈv a n | A Journal of Accounts will focus on the Asia-Pacific, South Asia, Middle East and North Africa regions.
Edited by Alan Cruickshank, and produced in partnership with University of New South Wales Faculty of Art & Design, the bi-annual d ɪˈv a n presents an extended analysis of international contemporary visual art and its multiple contexts, engaging both new and established voices and addressing a broad national and international audience of readers.
Professor Ross Harley, co-publisher, and Dean of UNSW Art & Design said “UNSW is committed to diversity and multiple perspectives. di’van looks beyond and outside traditional centres such as Europe and North America and seeks to examine often overlooked cultures, territories, and geographies."
The second edition features texts by Hoda Afshar, Paul Gladston, Charles Merewether, Vali Mahlouji, Bridget Crone, Nancy Adajania, Ray Langenbach, Robin Peckham, Alex Gawronski and Salima Hashmi.
The journal is supported by an international editorial advisory group comprising more than 20 eminent biennale curators and artistic directors, gallery directors, curators, art historians and art critics, academics and artists from across the Middle East, Asia-Pacific, Europe and Australia.
