In the paper the A. wants to draw attention to how and with what effect the engagements have proceeded. Discussion is framed by R. Krauss’ influential exploration of art’s ‘expanded field’. The body of the paper explores three analytics that mark intersections of art’s expanding field of theory and practice, and geography’s own expanding field of operations : they are artists’ changing orientations towards ‘site’, a phenomenological critique of the ‘body’, and the ‘materialities’ and ‘practices’ of making. Synthesizing these perspectives with current geographical engagements with art and broader disciplinary debates is to affirm the place and value of the study and practice of art within key disciplinary concerns.
