AHRC Collaborative PhD Studentship: Curating electronic arts
festivals: site responsive strategies
Fine Art Department, Newcastle University in collaboration with AV
This is an exciting opportunity to undertake PhD research into the
curatorial strategies of electronic arts festivals, with an emphasis
on their relationship to site.
Using AV Festival as a case study, this project will analyse the
curatorial strategies of electronic arts festivals, with a view to
developing new modes of curatorial practice. It will focus on the
issues of curating across multiple geographical areas, working
critically with technology, and the challenges of commissioning new
site-specific work. It may also explore the role of festivals in
supporting artistic practice, publishing, archiving, critical debate
and open culture.
The studentship is tenable for up to 3 years (full-time) or up to 5
years (part-time). A full or partial award is available. A full award
covers fees only. If you are a part time student, support is pro rata.
All applicants should comply with AHRC residency critieria. The
studentship is available from 26th September 2011.
