Volume 25 Open Issue

The editors of the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Art (ANZJA) are calling for submissions for the Journal’s next open issue, published in December 2025.

We seek original essays, dialogues, visual essays, and other texts that engage with artists, visual culture, exhibitions, critical debates, frameworks, and methodologies across art history, theory, curating, and practice in and across Australia and the Asia Pacific region.

ANZJA publishes research articles of 5,000 to 7,000 words (including endnotes), which will be peer-reviewed*. We encourage traditional and experimental approaches to peer-reviewed research articles, including essays, dialogues and embodied writing. We publish shorter texts (2000 to 3000 words long) of opinions and reflections and reviews of books, exhibitions, and conferences (which are not peer-reviewed). We also encourage visual essays. We are keen to provide a platform for writers historically excluded by scholarly publishing, including those who identify as First Nations and/or early career scholars, curators, and artists. The ANZJA editors will work with such contributors to offer support during the peer-review process. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us via the provided email.

*Peer-reviewed articles: ANZJA adopts the double-blind peer-review method. We send submissions to reviewers without the author's name/s, and reviewers also maintain anonymity. We strive to ensure that research specialisation, knowledge sharing, collegiality and cultural safety are central to our peer-review process.

ANZJA is published by Taylor & Francis and the Art Association of Australia and New Zealand (AAANZ). The journal is housed by UNSW Art & Design under the editorship of Dr Verónica Tello with the support of Professor Edward Scheer (Head of School) and an editorial committee comprising Professor Jennifer Biddle, Dr Diana Baker Smith, Dr Jaye Early, Dr Bianca Hester, Dr Astrid Lorange, Dr Shuxia Chen, and Dr Kasia Jezowska. AAANZ is Australia and New Zealand’s professional body for art and design historians, arts writers, artists, students of art history and theory, and museum professionals. ANZJA is Australasia and Pacifika’s principal refereed art-history journal. The Journal is dedicated to studying art history, art practice, theory and exhibitions.
