Steve Dutton

United Kingdom °1961
affiliation: Bath Spa University UK. Bath School of Art and Design

Steve Dutton is Professor of Fine Art at Bath Spa Unuiversity in the UK.  His past acaedemic roles include Reader in Fine Art at Sheffield Hallam University for 5 years, Professor in Creative Practice at Coventry University for 4 years ( where he founded and developed Lanchester Gallery Projects along with Sadie Kerr ) and  Professor in Contemporary Art Practice at the University of Lincoln for 5 years. He is an artist with an international profile who works on both collaborative and individual projects. Much of his work has been in collaborations but he is currently producing a new body of solo work which is characterised by a play with image/ text boundaries. Individual and collaborative projects have been exhibited throughout the UK and internationally including The Stag and Hound at PSL in Leeds for which Dutton and Swindells were nominated for the prestigious Northern Art Prize. His most recent work is an ongoing collaboration with Neil Webb and Bend in the River entitled ‘end of ends’ ( see ) . He also co-curated a major project entitled ‘Possession ( 1 )’ with Brian Curtin of Bangkok University for Bangkok Arts and Culture Centre ( BACC ) which opened in March 2013.  Steve is increasingly writing and delivering papers on the subject of ‘Artists’ institutes and the Institutes of Art’,  drawing on complexities within his own practice and the practice of a growing body of artists ( as opposed to academics and managers ) who seek to rethink the nature of the art educational institution as a process of unfolding ‘epistemic events’ rather than a sequence of ‘progressive’ tiers of knowledge.  This relationship to non-teleological space/time is central to his work both as an artist and as an academic.
