If you are working within the art history or curatorial fields then you should consider a membership to the Art Association of Australia and New Zealand (AAANZ).

AAANZ organises an excellent conference every year and publishes a journal showcasing great art historical writing on and by Australians and New Zealanders.

The Association has moved down to Melbourne under the Directorship of Anthony White, and has just revamped its website, so you can find out what they’re up to here.

It’s very important that this peak body remain strong and vital, and the Power Institute is delighted to keep contributing to the AAANZ’s awards and to continue in its support of the Australian & New Zealand Journal of Art.

Current and past issues of the Journal can be found on the Taylor & Francis website, and full text access is available for AAANZ members – just another reason to keep that membership up to date.
