This paper presents a critical perspective and reconsideration of arts practice and theory, in institutional frames of visual arts degree education. With reference to postmodern interpretative procedures of J-F. Lyotard, questions of legitimation and exclusion are examined, canonical claims of art and defining strategies of meaning addressed. In spaces of indeterminacy art is reconceptualised as discursive language in which difference may be legitimated through praxis, theory and practice working together as a continuously interactive process of inquiry in discourses of tertiary art education.
