In what follows, we position our differing conceptualizations of leadership in art education adjacent to one another for readers to explore their contingent performativity. Accordingly, we are emulating the convergence of papers, ours and those of other scholars, artists, and teachers who, at the 2016 National Art Education Association Convention, addressed the theme of leadership cross-pollination. Considering that the presenters’ address of this theme constituted a contingent multiplicity of artistic and scholarly perspectives suggests that the event of the conference likewise constituted an ideational assemblage and art education a field of immanent research and practice. As immanent forces, both the conference and the field of art education offered attendees opportunities to experience leadership cross-pollination from in-between and across the differing papers and presentations. It is that immanent performativity that we are inviting readers to summon as they perform an experimental reading in-between and across our two writings on the leadership-of-nonleadership in art education.
