How Artistic Research Ends
Danny Butt, Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne

“Artistic research” shadowed the growth of graduate study in studio arts in
the late 20th century, including the integration of many art schools and
polytechnics into a tightly integrated and networked higher education
sector, and an accompanying interest in art’s relationship to traditional
academic disciplines. As the art education sector grew, the key debates
were concerned with what the future of artistic research should look like
as it expands.

However, given the impact of neoliberal austerity measures and funding cuts
that have resulted in programme closures and declining enrolments, we now
consider the likelihood of artistic research contracting. What if artistic
research is now approaching the end of its university life, a fate
potentially shared by the critical elements of the humanities and social
sciences? Based on the historical analysis from the book “Artistic Research
in the Future Academy”, this presentation imagines the potential ways
artistic research may end and what this may mean for its potential renewal.

Danny Butt is a member of the art collective Local Time, and coordinates
the Master of Arts and Community Practice at the Victorian College of the
Arts, University of Melbourne. He is also a Research Associate in the
Research Unit in Public Cultures.

Professor Nikos Papastergiadis is the Director of the Research Unit in
Public Cultures, and Professor in the School of Culture and Communication
at The University of Melbourne.

Professor Barbara Bolt is an artist and art theorist, and Associate Dean
(Research) in the Faculty of VCA and MCM, University of Melbourne.

Professor Ashok Mathur is a writer, cultural organizer, and
interdisciplinary artist, and incoming Dean of Graduate Studies at OCAD
University in Toronto.

This event is supported by the Victorian College of the Arts, University of
Melbourne. ACCA is an accessible venue.
