Context

The UCL Slade School of Fine Art is concerned with contemporary art and the practice, history and theories that inform it. It approaches the study and practice of art in an enquiring, investigative, experimental and research-minded way. Slade facilities and infrastructure for research support the discourse around painting, sculpture and fine art media. In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, 70% of the department’s research activity was recognised as being in the top two categories of 4* (‘world leading’) or 3* (‘internationally excellent’). This result confirms that the Slade is one of England’s leading university departments for research in Fine Art.
