Conversations in Practice by ADMRC PhD students

Conversations in Practice

Conversations in Practice presents new works by eight artists from the Art and Design PhD programme at Sheffield Hallam University. The exhibition explores connections between diverse arts-based research projects and shared thematic and conceptual concerns with time, materiality and the body.

The show aims to open up dialogue between very different types of practice that include textiles, filmmaking, photography, bioart, augmented reality, print and projection.  These material explorations speak together in unintended and serendipitous ways to reveal insight into the nature of touch, communication, perception, brokenness, and domestic space.

With special thanks to Yorkshire Artspace and SHU art and design ToRs team.

The universal requirement of a PhD thesis is to ‘contribute to knowledge’ in an academic field. In practice, doctoral research has a life much wider than this, often weaving through publics, communities and localities, and multiple academic fields. This is particularly the case for the creative practice PhD with its combined worlds of artistic practice, art education, and diverse modes of writing. The show aims to celebrate this and encourages us to think further about our range and qualities of differing types of research transmission.
