A new essay series on the combination of artistic, practical and intellectual research
The Pragmatics of Art is a collaboration between Recent Work Press and the Centre for Creative and Cultural Research (CCCR) at the University of Canberra. Its aim is to offer essays that work on key challenges within the creative field and the cultural sector, and represents a working laboratory for students, artists, and scholars interested in learning to integrate the arts and skills of artistic knowledges and design into other branches of practical and intellectual work in our society.
The Pragmatics of Art aims to model and disseminate the combination of practical and intellectual research that guides the work of the Centre for Creative and Cultural Research (CCCR), and to provide thoughtful contributions from a wide variety of sources to artistic and intellectual projects that both derive from and serve larger communities.
