Journal of Contemporary Painting (Journal)

ISSN 20526695 , ONLINE ISSN 20526709

The Journal of Contemporary Painting (JCP) is a discursive peer-reviewed publication concerned with the practice of contemporary painting in its broadest sense. JCP treats painting as a context for discussion, exploring its sphere of influence, rather than as a medium-specific debate and is particularly interested in research emerging from practice-based projects.

The Journal of Contemporary Painting combines peer-reviewed scholarship, particularly that emerging from practice-based research, with new writing and visual essays by academics and practitioners. Research essays will complement reviews and interviews that are responsive to current debates in painting and related art practices. The Journal is aimed at a broad readership encompassing academics, critics, writers, artists, curators and the gallery-going public. The Journal of Contemporary Painting responds to the territory and practice of contemporary painting in its broadest sense, treating painting as a context for discussion and exploring its sphere of influence, rather than defining it as a medium specific debate.  The Journal combines a thematic approach with an open call, each issue opening up and problematising different facets of contemporary painting. As well as contributions to current debates on contemporary art, the Journal also publishes archival texts alongside current responsive articles allowing new debates to emerge, based on the premise that the contemporary cannot be understood without a self-reflexive knowledge of history.  The Journal will also work with artists and other scholars to produce original visual essays. In focusing on the territory of painting practice, JCP takes an international approach, providing a forum for the exchange of views drawn from a wide geographical field. The Journal maps where painting is, acting as a platform for international scholarship in this area.  The Journal also functions as a multidisciplinary discursive space in which a range of subject specialisms can be brought to bear on the culture of painting. JCP creates a place where scholars and practitioners from many disciplines can converge and exchange ideas on a common object of study.

The Journal of Contemporary Painting is a discursive publication concerned with the practice of contemporary painting in its broadest sense. The Journal treats painting as a context for discussion, exploring its sphere of influence, rather than as a medium specific debate and is particularly interested in research emerging from practice-based projects.

JCP combines a thematic approach with an open call, each issue opening up and problematising different facets of contemporary painting.  As well as contributions to current debates on contemporary art, JCP also examines previously unpublished or un-translated historical contributions, so as to allow new debates to emerge.

Papers are welcome from a range of perspectives and we invite expressions of interest with an initial abstract.  In particular we are currently looking for scholarship for our open issues, in addition to writings addressing the future thematic issues: Painting & Time and Gendered Painting.

Review submissions of international painting exhibitions, books and events are welcomed and received on a rolling deadline.

Please send expressions of interest to jcp@rca.ac.uk
