It is widely assumed that everyone is ‘interdisciplinary’ nowadays, that we all work at the intersections of conventional disciplines. But if being flexible, multi-skilled and polymathic are the prerequisites of survival in today’s world, why do educators and art marketeers still find it imperative to maintain conditions of production that advocate specialist outcomes?

Contemporary Art, Theory / History / Criticism
The aim of this new anthology in the Occasional Table series is to critically reflect upon the role of specialism in art and society and to understand better how the claim of those who seek to transcend the parameters of specialisation contrasts to that of others who maintain that deep levels of achievement can only be attained within highly focused methods and forms.

David Blamey is a London-based artist and proprietor of the independent publishing imprint Open Editions. His work encompasses several activities – including exhibiting, curating and publishing – which overlap to form a multidimensional practice that resists conventional categorisation.
