Course info

Summary

An art research degree isn’t a continuation of studio practice or a residency, but instead asks you to place your work in relation to the work of other practitioners in a contemporary and historical context. Originality can consist of different combinations of existing knowledge, as a means of demonstrating original practice.

Typically we’ll help you to focus and refine detailed aspects of your practice – aspects which may or may not have previously been associated with fine art. We’ll encourage you to more critically explore the thoughts and actions of others, as well as your own imperatives as a practising artist.

You’ll write a thesis in parallel with the practice-based research, demonstrating an original contribution to knowledge. We’ll help you focus on the appropriate practice for pursuing your research, and refine appropriate forms of discourse and dissemination.

Research areas

You’ll be supported by staff whose specialisms include:

  • art and biblical interpretation
  • Ethiopian artistic and architectural heritage
  • curatorial practice
  • socially engaged practice
  • curation in a community context
  • contemporary painting
  • Modernism re-explored in contemporary fine art practice
  • agendas around art and wellbeing
  • concrete poetry
  • artists’ publishing
  • contemporary drawing practice and pedagogy
  • sculpture
  • and the extended field in relation to performance and video.
