Research Methods is an opportunity for members of the associates programme to discuss various research methodologies in relation to their own work, as well as to discuss the very idea of ‘research-based practice’ in contemporary art, film, architecture, and curating. Through presentations and discussion, we hope to offer a useful resource for those of us who consider research to be central to our practice and also for those who feel like they would like to have more insight into the role of research in cultural production.

The workshop will be co-chaired by Tim Ivison, Christopher Gonzales Crane, and Pedro Castelo Ferreira who are all colleagues in the London Consortium PhD programme in Humanities and Cultural Studies.

Tim Ivison is an artist and researcher based in Los Angeles, where he maintains a collaborative studio art practice with Julia Tcharfas. Their work has appeared in the Artissima art fair, Turin; Tenderpixel, London; Can Felipe Arts Visuals, Barcelona; Space Studios, London; Museo d’arte Contemporanea Roma; MK Gallery, Milton Keynes; Auto Italia, London; Raid Projects, Los Angeles; and the UCLA Wight Biennial, as well as solo projects at Hilary Crisp and Chisenhale Gallery, both in London.
