Afterall Research Centre

on contemporary art and its relation to wider society

London, United Kingdom


Afterall focuses its research activities on the value of contemporary art and its relation to wider society. It specialises in 3 registers of art production and reception: the individual work; its exhibition or public display; and its dialogue with social, political and theoretical contexts. Based at Central Saint Martins, the research centre works with partners across 3 continents to deepen this enquiry and make it available through publications, digital access, conferences, screenings and talks. Afterall is closely linked to the MRes Art: Exhibition Studies pathway.
