Una Rey was among the winners at the 2017 AAANZ Book and PhD Prize. Her essay, ‘Women’s Business: Cross-cultural collaborations in remote Indigenous Art Centres’ won ‘Best Scholarly Article in the Australia and New Zealand Journal of Art’. The judges found her work to be a ‘thoughtful and original contribution to the scholarship of Australian art history, with challenging and difficult matter’. Jaime Tsai also received a ‘highly commended’ for ‘Equivocal Taxonomies: Fiona Hall and the Logic of Display’.


Due to high demand, we will be publishing a second open issue of the Australian & New Zealand Journal of Art this year.


Issue 2 for 2018 will be edited by Associate Professor Ann Elias, History and Theory of Contemporary Global Art, and Dr Stephen H. Whiteman, Senior Lecturer in Asian Art, both of the Department of Art History at the University of Sydney.

The editors seek research papers that engage with critical debates and scholarly frameworks across art-historical and theoretical enquiry within local and global contexts, plus review essays evaluating publications and exhibitions. Articles must be between 5,000 and 7,000 words (including endnotes) and should be suitable for a scholarly peer-reviewed journal.

See the ANZJA submission guidelines here for further details. Submissions not conforming to the guidelines will not be considered.

Papers, biographical information and images, should be submitted to the ANZJA Editorial Assistant via ScholarOne.
