"Creative individuals display a range of characteristics. These include a willingness to tolerate ambiguity, to play with ideas, materials, and processes, and a desire to grapple with finding solutions to problems or ideas. Artists and other creative individuals have the ability to explore connections and recognize the value of improbable juxtapositions of thoughts, images, and materials. Creative people often identify not just solutions but also problems to be tackled. They bring self-awareness and the audacity to pursue ideas, while often facing resistance or ridicule…" --excerpted from Jay Coogan's essay, "Evolutionary Forces: Advancing Art and Design Education" in Rethinking the Contemporary Art School.

Rethinking the Contemporary Art School

The Artist, the PhD, and the Academy

Published by The Press of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design
Edited by Brad Buckley, John Conomos.

With great timeliness, Rethinking the Contemporary Art School examines the very basis of the art school and its role in society. The book considers various art-school models—innovative graduate programs, independent stand-alone schools and art schools that are departments or schools of major research universities—and the problems that art schools face as academically marginalized institutions. Rethinking the Contemporary Art School concludes with essays on new media, inquiring whether the contemporary art school offers the right context for this discipline. The anthology includes contributions by Su Baker, Bruce Barber, Mikkel Bogh, Juli Carson and Bruce Yonemoto, Edward Colless, Jay Coogan, Luc Courchesne, Sara Diamond, Lauren Ewing, Gary Pearson, Bill Seaman and Jeremy Welsh.
