Artistic Research and Development Projects

The Royal Institute of Art has during its history engaged with different forms of artistic research and development work. The aim is to experiment with the processes and possibilities for artistic formation and articulation that exist within, between and beyond fine art, architecture and conservation architecture.

The artistic research and development projects contribute to the educational programmes at the school through exhibitions, workshops, performances, lectures and seminars. Projects are undertaken by faculty and students on the postgraduate level.
