During the exhibition Uncovered: How do you research through art? Postgraduate Researchers have organised the workshop, which will activate a process of visualisation of research journeys. Other PGRs from all disciplines are invited to take part.

Anglia Ruskin University is privileged to have creative PhD candidates researching in the range of disciplines included in the exhibition. The Postgraduate Researchers at the Cambridge School of Art, have coordinated this exhibition to uncover aspects of creative research journeys. The PhD students involved, make art in countless different media, from paintings, prints and textiles to films, books, and manuscripts, using technologies both old and new. Though, at first glance appearing to be very different from other research disciplines, such as the sciences, artistic enquiry as research can work in similar ways: through process which often encompasses various methodological strategies such as experimentation with the outcome of new knowledge.

The project, including the exhibition and a program of events, is conceived by Mary-Jane Montgomerie-House and Rebecca Hearle, Postgraduate Researchers at the Cambridge School of Art, and supported by Senior Research Fellow Dr Elena Cologni, Research Coordinator. This has been funded by Faculty of Art Humanities and Social Sciences at Anglia Ruskin University.
