Over the last three years, I have been conducting an extensive literature review to gather material on and about women artists. With the exception of the dedicated feminist arts journal LIP (1976-84), Artlink gives the most consistent and comprehensive coverage of Australian women artists. As a researcher looking at the last fifty years of art practice in Australia, Artlink’s themed issues have been extremely valuable.

In times of plenty, scarcity and global rethinking of sustainable models for consumption, we consider ways that visual artists work the food chain and champion the art of food, cooking and degustation. Privileging diverse forms of cultural knowledge, and the agency of First Nations Australians, food-led reconciliation is a core focus of this issue.
