Description - Artist, Researcher, Teacher by Alan Thornton
Challenging conventional wisdom about specialization and professional identity, Alan Thornton 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 expanding 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.
