Urgent Talk 033:
Current State of Research-Based Practice - Discussion with ARCUS Project Resident Artists

* Booked Out
Japanese-English simultaneous interpretation available

“Research-based” artistic practice, in which the artist conducts research and bases a work on the results, is one of major currents in contemporary art today. Extremely diverse in nature, such research frequently extends beyond the art domain into subjects such as astronomy, geology, ethnography, even economic ties and consumer trends. Today, the development of the Internet has made it possible to research what in some cases are even very niche topics in this wide range of fields, prompting a sudden rise in the output of “research-based” art.
How does this research undertaken by artists differ from that performed by experts and researchers in the relevant fields, or at universities and other institutions of higher education? The works that are the outcome of such research are many and varied in form, including installation, text, sound, and lecture performance, but how do these differ from Conventional works of art?
Speaking at this talk will be three artists/artist units taking part in the ARCUS Project artist-in-residence program, who have been spending time in the Ibaraki city of Moriya since the end of August this year conducting research on Japan. The artists will give presentations on how they chose their research topics, the practical details of producing their works, and other relevant concerns, and discuss the characteristics and meaning of “research-based” art practice today.
