The Art Association of Australia and New Zealand is Australasia's professional body for art historians. It publishes the Australian and New Zealand Journal of Art, Australasia's principal DEST-accredited, refereed art-history journal. In 2007, editorship transferred to a team of Brisbane-based art historians and the IMA became co-publisher. With the 2012 Open Issue, the Brisbane editiorial team has now produced five issues, bringing its tenure to an end. A 2013 issue, on the theme of 'Contact', will be guest-edited by Geoffrey Batchen and David Maskill from the art-history department at Victoria University of Wellington, and published by the IMA. From 2014, the Journal will be edited by a Sydney-based team lead by Professor Mark Ledbury, at the Power Institute, University of Sydney, and Professor Peter McNeil, at the University of Technology, and will be published by international academic publisher Taylor and Francis.

Call for Papers for the Next Issue
Building on the AAANZ's 2011 conference on the theme of 'Contact' (hosted by the Art History program at Wellington's Victoria University), we call for papers to be submitted on this theme for the 2013 issue of the Journal. Guest-editors Geoffrey Batchen and David Maskill are interested in receiving papers on all possible manifestations of 'Contact', including encounter, exchange, contestation, conversion, transmission, absorption, pollution, and translation. They particularly welcome essays that seek to articulate the relationship between indigenous and settler visual cultures or examine the complexities of art produced in transnational and postcolonial contexts. Papers of 5–8,000 words should be e-mailed to the editors (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com) by 1 April 2013.
