    This exhibition of postgraduate students with Lancaster University's Institute of Contemporary Art (LICA) introduces works that adopt a range of diverse visual approaches and methods, illustrating each contributor's current state of development. The exhibition showcases contemporary approaches to art, referred to as 'practice-based research.' At the forefront of defining new methods, practice-based research allows the creative proecess to form a critical relationship with academic theory. Such interrorgation between creativity and theory intends to bring about new forms of knolwege and new creative practice.(Source exhibition catalogue)
