Culture Lab Newcastle University, and CRUMB University of Sunderland present the first 2 day symposium in a 2 year series, in an AHRC funded Collaborative Research Training project on research training, digital media art and curating. This event is quite short notice, but maybe posting it here nevertheless raises interest in future events of this kind.
Inventing Methodologies is a series of conferences designed to provide a platform for the discussion of the novel and highly-contested notion of practice-based research in art practice.
Practice-based researchers are faced with a dual challenge. The first is the intrinsically bifurcated nature of a research project composed of a written element in conjunction with a practical element. The second is the interdisciplinarity inherent in writing art. These structural complexities are also an enduring characteristic of the practice/theory relationship.
