Discursivity: Call for Artworks

Published date 05 December 2019

A new exhibition platform across two sites for CCW practice-based PhD students

CCW PhD students are invited to submit their artworks (either complete or in process) for participation in a group exhibition and a one–day discussion led by Dr Mo Throp & Dr Stephen Wilson which will explore the discursive, analytical and explicative possibilities of practice-as-research. Together we will re-examine what has been produced and look closely at the relationships between political, ethical and aesthetic gestures under which new knowledge is possible to research and discover. The discussions will also include MA Fine art students.

The exhibition aims to showcase the visibility of the innovative and exploratory research within practice-based PhD candidates at CCW. Together we hope to provide shared insights about what is proposed within postgraduate art education and the increasing rise of research contexts available today.

Exhibitions sites include:

Camberwell Space: 12th–26thMarch 2020

Private View in the evening with drinks on March 16th; followed by a day of discussion on March 19th with Camberwell MA Fine Art students in attendance.
