MRes Art is made up of three specialist pathways: Theory and Philosophy; Moving Image; and Exhibition Studies. MRes Art uses research and writing to develop modes of questioning, speculative thinking and critical evaluation. Drawing upon a wealth of scholarly expertise from the staff team, visiting lecturers and practitioners, the course considers the relationship of contemporary art research to wider aesthetic, cultural and socio-political issues.

MRes Art: Theory and Philosophy promotes dialogue between practitioners and theorists about art discourse today. Suited to artists and writers, this pathway explores art and the philosophy of art from a contemporary perspective, embracing major ideas and debates of the past and present.

MRes Art: Exhibition Studies examines the history of contemporary art through key developments in the exhibition form. In addition to the selection of art and mode of address, students consider the wider social conditions and impact exhibitions can have on those who experience them.

MRes Art: Moving Image explores the rich histories, theories and aesthetics that have led artists to turn to film and video. The course pruimarily asks: what insights can a study of artists' moving image offer us for understanding the diverse practices that now fill our art spaces?
