Andrew Bracey - Programme Leader
Andrew teaches on the MA and BA Fine Art courses, organises the ART TALKS lectures as well as being the College of Arts postgraduate taught programme lead. His practice-based research focuses on the slippage and overlap between the artist and the curator and his current PhD research is an exploration of parasitical tendencies of the contemporary artist using existing paintings as a host for new artworks.School Staff List Make an Enquiry
