Art Practice as Research: Inquiry in the Visual Arts
Library Shelf Location 08.SULL
Publication Date Feb 2005
Description Art Practice as Research presents a compelling argument that the creative and cultural inquiry undertaken by artists is a form of research. This text explores themes, practices and contexts of artistic inquiry and positions them within the discourse of research. Graeme Sullivan argues that legitimate research goals can be achieved by choosing different methods than those offered by the social sciences. The common denominator in both approaches is the attention given to rigor and systematic inquiry. Artists emphasize the role of the imaginative intellect in creating, criticizing, and constructing knowledge that is not only new but also has the capacity to transform human understanding.
