Abstract:

"Challenging conventional wisdom and specialization and professional identity, Alan Thorton shows that many individuals have complex, varied, and evolving relationships with visual art -- relationships that do not fit into any single category. Against the backdrop of an explanding research culture and current employment models in the United States and the United Kingdom -- where many artists also work as teachers -- he argues for the necessity of a theory that both reflects and influences practice in the realm of art and art-related work. By elucidating our current situation, Artist, Researcher, Teacher opens the door to much-needed new approaches, and provides fresh insights for those interested in identity formation and professional roles and practices"--Back cover.
