About Frame:

Frame is a peer-review, re-imagined, transdisciplinary rebirth of pART, an art history journal housed at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. While pART focused solely on art history, Frame has moved away from the restrictive domain of one discipline in order to give space to a variety of scholars who produce work pertinent to visual and material culture in ways that transgress traditional disciplinary borders. In addition, it is a venue in which the notions of “visual,” “material,” and “culture” are to be interrogated so as to move beyond what and how we think these terms.
