EXPRESSIONS OF RESEARCH – RESEARCH & ARTS COLLABORATION

FRINGE ARTS BATH, UNIVERSITY OF BATH’S PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT UNIT AND ICIA ARE LOOKING FOR ARTISTS TO COLLABORATE WITH RESEARCHERS. (FAB, UOB, PEU, ICIA)

We wish to develop an exhibition based on internationally leading research conducted at the UoB to build awareness within Bath and beyond as part of University’s 50th anniversary celebrations, via engagement between artists and researchers. The exhibition would then tour to a number of venues in BANES between July 2016 and September 2017.

Artists and Researchers are to work together, drawing from and influencing each other’s work. This is not simply about presenting research in a different light, we are interested in you making contributions to each other’s working practice, resulting in new and exciting works to be presented in a new way to a new audience.
