Home / Events / Event
Sir Tom Cowie Campus at St Peter's

Join us online at 4.00pm for Publishing Art and Design Research followed by the launch of 'A Book for Research that is Art' at 5.00pm, Northern Centre of Photography.

University of Sunderland had significant successes in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 21, with Art and Design research outputs identified as a particular strength within the institution.

We are delighted to invite you to dive into a core area for Art and Design research and join our interactive seminar entitled Publishing Art and Design Research. We invite you to consider the opportunities and challenges that new and established researchers must navigate in a rapidly evolving publishing landscape.

Speakers:

Beryl Graham and Suzy O’Hara will launch 'To Fit the New Art: 7 Years of Curating Art After New Media' (2022). A co-authored, online publication that celebrates 7 years of collective insights and experiences from international curators, as they share emerging new media art practices and discuss how curators can best fit their practices, so that audiences can engage with this exciting art.

Alexandra Moschovi will present her monography, 'A Gust of Photo-Philia: Photography in the Art Museum' (2020). Published by Leuven University Press, this book—part institutional history, part account of shifting photographic theories and practices—tells the story of photography's accommodation in and as contemporary art in the art museum.Please join us for a drinks reception to celebrate the launch of the new publication ‘A Book for Research that is Art’, created by the final cohort of doctoral students who are supported by The AHRC Northumbria-Sunderland Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT).

AHRC Northumbria-Sunderland Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) students will launch 'A Book for Research that is Art' (2022), a collaborative publication that demonstrates how artists and makers are redefining the conceptual core of their practice as they create forms, motions and spatial emulations that are directly informed by technology.

These three short presentations will be followed by an informal discussion led by Prof Mike Collier.

A Book for Research that is Art brings together seven researchers and makers whose practices sit at the intersection of art and craft thinking and digital making. Our work is defining a new language that reinvents art and craft skills, techniques, patterns, and materials primarily through the augmentation and integration of digital technology.

Our publication demonstrates how artists and makers are redefining the conceptual core of their practice as they create forms, motion, and spatial emulations that are directly informed by technology. The event will include a presentation of work by some of the book’s contributors.

The students are: Dena Bagi, Dr Crystal Bennes, Ben Evans James, Theo Harper, Laura Harrington, Helen McGhie and Georgia Smithson.
