Art and Design

In the area of fine art the topics for these PhD research programmes are linked to staff expertise together with student interests, and reflect the increasing potential of practice-based PhD studies. Informed by the student's particular discipline, applicants are asked to critically contextualise their work at a high level, clarify both the theoretical and practical research-based enquiries, and produce distinctive contributions to the research field. Cambridge School of Art provides various research forums that accentuate the discursive and interdisciplinary nature of research, including the Fine Art Research Unit (FARU) which holds regular seminars and informal presentations for postgraduate and research students and the Cultures of the Digital Economy Research Institute (CoDE). Students are allocated 2 supervisors, with additional members added if necessary. Academic supervision is available in most areas of contemporary fine art, with emphasis on: recent issues in painting and the expanded field of contemporary practice; objects, installation and the virtual: examining transitions and tensions between the physical object, exhibition space, moving image and concepts of virtuality; interdisciplinary work with sound and video; performance art practices and their relationship to liveness and documentation; the interdisciplinary nature of printmaking and its relationship to technology and the expanded field of contemporary art practices; landscape, mapping and ambulatory practices.
