Art Research Centre

The Art Research Centre comprises artists and critical writers working across digital media, painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture: each has exhibited or published their work internationally.

The activities of some individuals in the Art Research Centre are linked, in part, by a concern with the viewer’s place, with location and with landscape, and in relation to this area a theoretical discussion has developed on Critical Topology of Landscape: Visual Art and the Politics of Space the subject of a symposium at Bath in April 2007.


The Contemporary Art group operates formally through a sequence of meetings, presentations, seminars and staff mentoring – and there are many less formal exchanges and discussions across a broad range of practice in the visual arts. Together these provide the basis for the supervision of six PhD students.
