Theorem is the first group exhibition of PhD practice-based research within the Cambridge School of Art.
With research being conducted in film and media studies, illustration, fashion, fine art, typography and graphic design, Theorem promises to be as diverse as it is engaging, providing CSA doctoral researchers the opportunity to present their visual research outcomes within an exhibition format.
Some of the research to be presented investigates how global brands adapt their logo marks from Latin to non-Latin scripts, how multiple cultures respond to interactive artworks involving hi-tech and low-tech outcomes, consideration of the colonial present in relation to Iraq and how this is processed culturally, the meaning of concrete poetry in the field of digital poetry, and a consideration of the authorial voice of the [Con] Artist as an agent of influence, persuasion and deliberate fictions.
A concurrent symposium, Theory:Practice, will give those researchers scope to discuss their research. Keynote speakers will discuss the investigative issues and challenges involved in practice-based research, and how the links between theory and practice work.
