We are a group of settler art historians from Aotearoa New Zealand, Australia, Canada, South Africa and the United States who are working on a methodology for art history that responds to the peculiar and particular dynamics of settler-colonial societies. Our project is allied with contemporary developments in art historical practice, and responds especially to the growing visibility of indigenous art history and the challenges this offers for settler art historians to rethink existing approaches to art as part of wider processes of decolonization in the twenty first century.
