Artists Emma Bolland, Rose Butler, Helen Clarke, Michael Day, Susannah Gent, Debbie Michaels, Emma O’Connor, Bernadette O’Toole, Jo Ray, Rachel Smith, and Rachel Emily Taylor, artists from Sheffield Hallam University Fine Art Ph.D, exhibit works, presenting their making as research.


Testing Testing includes film, photography, text, painting, code, and installation. Particular inquiries consider distraction, technology, language, the nature of the model, surveillance, the uncanny, narratives in heritage and healthcare, the politics of the female body, screenplay structure and literature in the visual arts. Drawing from these diverse research processes and practices each of the artists taking part will form a dialogue with an invited contributor. These dialogues will form part of the Testing Testing publication, associated talks, and events.
