Anna Lovatt

University of Nottingham

Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship

The role of drawing in New York based sculptural practices of the late 1960s and early 70s

In her examination of the relationship between drawing and sculpture in this period, Dr Anna Lovatt pays particular attention to the work of Ruth Vollmer, Mel Bochner, Eva Hesse, Sol LeWitt and Dorothea Rockburne.

Her current research interests include Post-war American drawing, particularly in the context of post-Minimal and Conceptual art; the diagram in twentieth-century art and theory; transatlantic dialogue in Conceptual art; and legacies of the 1960s in contemporary artistic practice.


Alistair Rider

University of St Andrews

Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship

Base Measure: Carl Andre’s Sculptures and Politics 1959-1976

As well as his research into the poetry and sculpture of Carl Andre, Dr Alistair Rider is also concerned with Post-war sculpture, artist-led political activism, art and ecology, and contemporary art and climate change.

Jonathan Katz

Visiting Associate Professor, Smith College

Senior Research Fellowship

Experiential Eros: Intersubjective Sculpture in the 1960s

Jonathan Katz’s fellowship project examines how artists of the 1960s mobilised the body and its pleasures towards crafting a universal erotic subject, in clear contrast to our current modelling of identity through difference.

Andrew Bick

Research Fellowship

Eccentric Construction

Independent curator and artist Andrew Bick’s research project re-examines Constructed Abstract Art in the UK in the light of contemporary practice, using the work of Anthony Hill and Achill Redo as a starting point.
