Art Practice as Research: Inquiry in the Visual Arts presents a compelling argument that the creative and cultural inquiry undertaken by artists is a form of research. The text explores themes, practices, and contexts of artistic inquiry and positions them within the discourse of research. Author Graeme Sullivan argues that legitimate research goals can be achieved by choosing different methods than those offered by the social sciences. The common denominator in both approaches is the attention given to rigor and systematic inquiry. Artists emphasize the role of the imaginative intellect in creating, criticizing, and constructing knowledge that is not only new but also has the capacity to transform human understanding.

About the Author:

Graeme is Director of the School of Visual Arts, Penn State University, and Professor of Art Education. He is the former Chair of the Department of Arts and Humanities, Teachers College, Columbia University. He received both his PhD and MA in Art Education from The Ohio State University. Since the early 1990s his research has involved an ongoing investigation of thinking processes in visual arts and studio-based research practices. These ideas and approaches are described in the new edition of Art Practice as Research: Inquiry in the Visual Arts (www.artpracticeasresearch.com). Graeme has published widely in the field of art education and in 1990 received the Manual Barkan Memorial Award for scholarly writing, and the 2007 Lowenfeld Award for significant contribution to the field of art education, both from the National Art Education Association. Graeme is also the author of Seeing Australia: Views of Artists and Artwriters (1994). Graeme maintains an active art practice and his Streetworks (www.streetworksaert.com) have been installed in several international cities and sites over the past fifteen years.

Review:

“Sullivan challenges our assumptions about what constitutes research practices and in doing so presents a ground-breaking analysis for visual arts practice as research. This compelling image-text book opens the possibilities for the construction of new forms of knowledge in our increasingly visual world.” (Dipti Desai)

“Sullivan provides a timely and excellent introduction to the emerging field of visual cognition and educational research.” (Pradeep Dhillon)

“In this rich and layered reflection on visual arts practice as research, Graeme Sullivan launches a passionate and convincing case that rewrites the definitions of ‘art’ and ‘research’ as it unapologetically claims for the visual arts the respect and admiration of the academy.” (Jessica Hoffman Davis)

Art Practice as Research is long overdue. Graeme Sullivan eloquently crafts a methodology text and articulates for contemporary visual artist-researchers how arts practices are, in fact, rich forms of research inquiry.” (Rita L. Irwin)

“Sullivan’s text is an important addition to the literature associated with research, critical inquiry, and arts education. I wish that such a text would have been available at the time that I was working on my dissertation. I will recommend it to my graduate students and colleagues.” (Doug Blandy)

"Sullivan has writen a complex, closely reasoned, and very detailed dargument about a topic that, at first glance, seems superfluous to anyone who has ever had the good fortune to observe serious artists seriously engaged in making their art...  Sullivan has created an excellent, even poetic, excercise in his own endeavor to share his understandings of the creative process." (W.S. Johnson Choice Magazine 2005-06-01)

"I can recommend Sullivan′s book for those who want a thorough overview of the field of inquiry in the visual arts. It is well structured and Sullivan presents many examples to illustrate his arguments." (Folkert Haanstra 2007-03-20)

"Art Practice As Research is encyclopedic in depth and scope of material supporting the author′s vital thesis, and the vision of studio art as fully acknowledged academic research, may be elusive as the dragonfly." (Patricia M. Hancock 2007-03-20)

"The book eloquently explains research practices found in the art studio and argues that visual art research is grounded in the practices that come from art itself. This profound and visionary book . . . is an essential text for every research student of art and art education in art schools and schools of education." (Susan Paterson 2007-03-20)
