move beyond traditional notions...

Borland Project Space projects, workshops, and exhibitions move beyond traditional notions of exhibition, performance, and scholarly programming to reveal the processes and procedures of “arts research,” which are frequently hidden from view.

Throughout the academic year, BPS is home to several residencies during which faculty activate and utilize the space for a specific research project. These residencies are not intended to exhibit final products, but rather to present works in progress. By placing ongoing research projects in a gallery-like setting, the Borland Project Space brings transparency to the research process in all its forms and stages. In addition, events held in conjunction with each project engage the larger community with “arts research.”
