Rosemary O’Neill, Associate Professor of Art History, co-edited and contributed to Art as Adventure: Going Beyond, which was recently published by Cambridge Scholars. The anthology consists of six essays by art historians and practitioners about the role of artist as traveler. According to the publisher’s website, “the book encompasses a variety of perspectives on how artist-travelers have embraced and contextualized the places, people, cultures and overall experiences encountered on their journeys. Each chapter unveils different and unique approaches which artists have taken in reacting and creating as part of a journey in which they are often the outsiders to the culture and place.”
O’Neill’s chapter “Christoph Fink’s Atlas of Movements: Between Cartography and Poetry” and her introduction, written with co-editor James P. Werner, can be read on the publisher’s website here.
