Research Postgraduate Programmes (PhD and MPhil) 
AVA Research Postgraduate Programmes are based on identifying, understanding and developing creative practice as a specialised field of knowledge production. It is particularly focused on practice-led research strategies and methodologies in the visual arts with the intention of supporting the development of individual creative arts practitioners’ works and research. Students will engage with theory and writing and often include studio-based creative practice to fully address a research topic in the visual arts. The programme enables them the production of new bodies of work within a structure of tutorials, seminars, and lectures that requires research candidates to evaluate and reflect on a range of conceptual, philosophical, material and theoretical frameworks, and demonstrate their understanding of contemporary critical thinking and visual art practice.   

Current areas of research expertise include but not limited to: Body Aesthetics and Performance Art, Chinese Arts (practical and theoretical), Contemporary and Modern Art, Design, Hong Kong Art and Culture, Interactive Media, Time-based Media, Material Culture, Transcultural Studies, Public Art and Community, and Visual Culture Studies.
