Intermedia art operates in a fine art context and is the area of artistic practice between different media. During the late 20th century visual art developments introduced new processes and situations, which resulted in an expanded notion of artistic practice. Our programme encourages you to test boundaries and introduce new vocabularies into the artistic conversation. You can work across a number of different and overlapping areas central to intermedia art study. These include sound, object making, installation, performance, publications and video. A visual culture strand provides a multidisciplinary context for your study across all our art programmes. This involves the imaginative research, analysis and communication of issues raised by the visual aspects of culture. You will engage in a critical and creative dialogue with the work of your peers and gain an understanding of the nature of today's diverse visual cultures. You will study the artistic, intellectual, social and professional contexts that shape creative practice in visual arts and learn how to best communicate this in a range of written, oral, visual and practical forms. Our students demonstrate imaginative responses to the world through curiosity and exploration and we prepare them to do this with an educational experience that offers depth, breadth and ambition. Our students are equipped with the talent, knowledge and expertise to lead, rather than simply respond to, innovation in art practice. Our graduates go on to achieve a high level of national and international recognition and success as practising artists. Our league table rankings are excellent. We're ranked among the best in the UK for art according to the Guardian University Guide 2017. You'll benefit from weekly talks from internationally acclaimed visiting artists and speakers. Our airy and light-filled studios, project spaces and workshops provide excellent facilities for making work, communicating ideas and generating dialogue. Our staff are a mix of practising artists, visual-culture theorists and curators, who publish and exhibit nationally and internationally.
