The award-winning journal, in print since 1919, is devoted to new research on the works of art in the museum’s permanent collection.

This issue features five articles in which the authors examine objects from the DIA collection in the light of new scholarship, technical analysis, and archival research. Each article reclaims a place in art history for makers, subjects, or contexts that had been marginalized or obscured in one way or another. An introductory essay by the Bulletin of the Detroit Institute of Arts Editorial Board precedes the articles.

The contents included in this publication are:

  • "Introduction” by the Editorial Board, comprised of DIA curators
  •  “Thinking Globally, Acting Locally: A Select Review of DIA of Contemporary Art Acquisitions (2016–2019)” by Laurie Ann Farrell, Art Historian, Writer, and previous Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Detroit Institute of Arts
