CAVE logoCAVE is a research centre based at the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies. Initiated by Dr Sam Belinfante (Academic Fellow in Fine Art and Curatorial Practice) in 2016, in collaboration with staff and students from across the school and faculty. It is the ambition of CAVE to become the foremost centre for investigations into the ‘audio-visual’ within contemporary art theory and practice. CAVE will be the site for a series of iconoclastic exhibitions, workshops and symposia, supporting the international arts community whilst helping disseminate our own significant research outputs.
