Situating Artistic-Anthropological Research

AHRC Banner Logo

Project Description

This project engages three highly innovative arts organisations - Collective (Edinburgh), Deveron Projects (Huntly) and ATLAS Arts (Portree) - to develop an ‘exploded-view’ of artistic-anthropological research (antart). These organisations share an investment in Social Practice, situated knowledges and the anthropological-turn. Blending the disciplines of contemporary art and anthropology, the research will develop inventive methods to conduct situated artistic-anthropological research that both contributes to, and helps us to better understand, the R&D, programming, commissioning and evaluation of art organisations. This knowledge exchange will make a significant artistic contribution to programming that will equally engage custodians, makers, scholars and audiences in the processes of creative research.
