· Artistic Research and Fieldwork as Social Practice





The work of Gavin Renwick bridges art and architecture, and utilises methods that honour both visual research and the parity of indigenous and First Nation traditional knowledge. He has been working with the Tlicho First Nation People in the Canadian Sub Arctic on their Land Claim to the Canadian Government, supporting the articulation of a non-Western understanding of the land and environment. In summer 2010 Gavin Renwick was appointed Professor of Design Studies within the Department of Art & Design, Faculty of Arts, University of Alberta, Canada. He retains a visiting professorship at the University of Dundee where he worked as practice led researcher, professor and Chair of Art and Policy at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design.
