Fine Art

Research focuses on distinctive research strands of contemporary relevance, involving both practice-based and theoretical modes of inquiry. The research specifically seeks to combine the production and reception of art, the roles of artist, curator and author, and the categories of practice, theory and criticism. Emerging and innovative practices demand new forms that question both theory and practice without presupposing where exactly the distinction falls, and this is where the department's research seeks to intervene.
