PhD Studentship

In partnership with Sheffield Hallam University’s Art & Design Research Centre, Site Gallery is recruiting a PhD studentship to research the digital and the handmade, to start October 2017.

As the shift to new technologies impacts on how we envision ourselves and our cultural legacy, this project explores the impact of this on both our way of viewing art and the gallery experience. Contemporary art has influenced the rapid development of new technologies to enable new art forms to swiftly arise, expanding the field of art through net art, digital installation and works using virtual reality. Conceptions of studio practices are changing in parallel with these developments. While two decades of the world-wide web have enabled dissemination to a wider community and also extended diversity and awareness, in-person attendance has decreased. The project responds to timely and urgent issues for art’s audiences, raising key questions to explore the viewing of art works.
