Art, Social and Spatial Practice

The Art, Social and Spatial Practice (ASSP) Cluster seeks to investigate the potential of both the material and social production of art as object, performance, spatial practice or relational experience. The cluster will foster cross-disciplinary research dialogue and opportunities for collaboration. It addresses the spatial and social relevance of context central to contemporary arts practice and art in public and institutional spaces.
