An experiment in form, Unlikely engages its audience and contributors in a two-stage process of live event, presenting creative practitioners’ works, followed by peer-reviewed electronic publication. Unlikely works with an international editorial board and a large panel of peer-reviewers.

Call for the forthcoming second issue: Field Work
Editors: Lucas Ihlein and Brogan Bunt

“Fields”: arenas for action; social discourses; professional areas of practice; knowledge disciplines.

Field Trips: tours, excursions, forays. Research trips, adventures, residencies. Working in the forest, in old mining towns, in local suburbs, on farms. Artists placed in corporations, government departments, schools. Ethnographic models, educational models, activist models, scientific models. “The artist as”… Field as field.

Going for a walk. Site specific work. Community as site. Placemaking. Field Work.

This issue of Unlikely explores creative practice beyond the studio. What opportunities for the creation of new knowledge are “out there, in the field”? What new methods for artmaking are born when artists venture outside the art world – or indeed, take the artworld itself as field? How do documentation, reportage, and writing help make field work visible and intelligible? How do artworks define their own fields?

Contributions are invited which exemplify, represent, analyse and probe creative practice situated in such ways.
