I am delighted to inform you that Dónal O Donoghue is the guest editor of the special issue entitled “Curating as a Condition of Art Education” in Visual Inquiry Learning & Teaching Art. This recently published special issue includes articles that contribute in different degrees to both the theory and practice of art education and its relation to curatorial practice.
“Difficult to define, but central nonetheless to the field of contemporary art and education, curatorial practice significantly impacts how artworks are understood, written about and positioned with the field of art, and ultimately within the realm of art education. Individually and collectively, the articles included in this issue demonstrate that curatorial practice and thought have unique educational potential as they explore how art is made, accessed, understood, encountered, and presented for understanding and experience. Individually and collectively, the articles included in this issue propose that curatorial practice is a form of production worthy of consideration in art education programs in schools and other educative sites.”

Hearty congratulations, Dónal!
