Based within our Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media (CREAM) our research into visual arts is part of 1 of the UK's leading centres for research in visual media art, design and music. It boasts over 30 researchers, including internationally renowned artists, filmmakers, photographers, theorists, critics and musicians. The group has expertise in ceramics, installation and performance practice and criticism in contemporary theory and practice. Interests span ceramic installation art practice, ceramic history and museology. Research grew out of Harrow's 1960s ceramics course and now provides a bridge between normative ceramic concerns, arts and science disciplines.
