Beyond Art/Archaeology: Research and Practice after the "Creative Turn"

Antonia Thomas, Daniel Lee, Ursula Frederick, Carolyn White

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    There are many points of intersection between art and archaeology. These can be explored from a number of different perspectives, such as the role that images play in archaeologi-cal narratives and visual practice (Molyneaux 1997; Smiles and Moser 2004), and the influence of archaeology on modern and contemporary artists (Renfrew 2003; Causey 2008; Roelstraete 2013). What is particularly interesting, however, is the increasing trend for activities which might be understood as evidence of an archaeological “creative turn”: collaborations and conversations in which archaeologists have aimed to break down disciplinary boundaries and explore research and practice through themes common to both art and archaeology (see, for example, papers in Russell and Cochrane 2014).
