About this seminar

Invited speaker at: Naked on the Beach. On the Exposition of Artistic Research The 6th intensive Nida Doctoral School summer course for DA and PhD students in art, design, architecture, humanities and social sciences. 26 August – 2 September 2018. Nida Art Colony of Vilnius Academy of Arts, Lithuania. Lecture: The Exposition of Practice as Research Arguably everybody concerned with artistic research will have encountered the question of what it is, which often comes paired with a challenge to its status as art or its validity as research. Rather than accepting such an impossible position between a rock and a hard place, over the last few years, practitioners have started to question whether ‘art’ as pitched against ‘knowledge’ is still a relevant concept and whether knowledge void of aesthetic experiences is worth having. As a consequence, the value of artistic research may be seen to lie in specific engagements between art and knowledge, in which neither is taken for granted to provide the guide against which a project is judged. Rather, definitions of art or knowledge are seen to emerge from a research project in specific ways. However, projects are never accessible as such; we only have their articulations to go by. Hence, a new concern has arisen regarding the mode and quality of such articulations, for which we, at the Journal for Artistic Research (JAR), coined the term ‘expositions.’ The lecture will explain the use of ‘expositions’ in the journal, engage with wider definitions of term and speculate how things may continue to develop.
