Professor Adrian Heathfield from the Department of Drama, Theatre and Performance has received two significant research awards. He is the recipient of a Follow-on Funding award from the Arts and Humanities Research Council for his continuing work on Performance Matters. This research project investigates the cultural value of performance art and live art. The award will see Professor Heathfield realise and distribute a number of filmed dialogues in 2013 arising from his work with partners Goldsmiths, University of London and the Live Art Development Agency.

Professor Heathfield has also been awarded a prestigious Marie Curie International Outgoing Fellowship from the European Research Council (2014-2016) through which he will become an international fellow at Columbia University, New York in order to conduct a research project called Curating the Ephemeral. This project investigates curatorial practice within and without visual art institutions in relation to ephemeral and immaterial art.
