Journal of INTI was first published in December 1977 by the Faculty of Art & Design, Universiti Teknologi MARA (formally known as Institut Teknologi MARA) as a useful way to provide knowledge in highlighting the importance of art and design as a discipline, which is also enriched with philosophical, aesthetic and humanistic values. Published biannually, Journal of INTI offers opportunities for researchers, artists, activists, practitioners, art critics and art historians to publish their papers in the form of articles or essays pertaining issues that encompass the whole aspect of visual arts, from theories to practices.
Several important issues that had been grasped include national identity, traditional and indigenous arts, the relation of human and arts and other issues surrounding the world of design, modern as well as contemporary arts. Apart from academic writings, Journal of INTI also published insets of selected artworks by local artists and designers. Journal of INTI’s editorial boards consists of the academic staff of Faculty of Art & Design who possess skills and knowledge in the field of history, theory and practice, strengthened by a group of editorial panels from local and international universities.
