Pivot provides the space from which to respond to the shared and divided scholarly territories of visual culture. Concordia’s new peer-reviewed graduate academic interdisciplinary journal brings together the Departments of Art History, Studio Arts and Media Studies in a forum for graduate scholarship working towards the exploration of relationships among diverse forms of art practice and production, as well as among art historical scholarship, visual studies, theory, and criticism. Pivot accepts submissions from graduate students across many disciplines within Canada and
internationally. As a journal of visual culture recognizing art production as a site for scholarly exploration, Pivot accepts content in the form of academic papers, artist project descriptions, short texts by artists, and image based proposals.

The first issue of Pivot is published with support from the Graduate Students Association at Concordia University and the Art History Graduate Students Association.
