Leverhulme Early Career Fellow
Birmingham School of Art
Theo Reeves-Evison is a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at Birmingham School of Art, where he is working on a funded research project entitled ‘Speculative Natures: Contemporary Art and Interventionist Ecology’. The project investigates how processes of speculation and storytelling have the capacity to organise environmental activities around imagined futures, and will manifest in several events, presentations and publications over the next three years.
Prior to taking up this research post, his teaching experience covered a range of levels and subject areas, from MA Cultural Theory to Foundation Art and Design. He holds a BA in Fine Art, an MA in Critical Theory and a PhD in Cultural Studies from Goldsmiths College.
He is the editor, together with Jon K. Shaw of Fiction as Method (Sternberg, 2017), and has published recent articles in magazines and journals such as Frieze, Paragrana and Parallax. In January 2018 he edited a special issue of the journal Third Text with Mark Rainey on the theme of ‘ethico-aesthetic repairs’, and his monograph After Transgression: Ethics of Contemporary Art is to be published in 2019 by Bloomsbury Academic Press.
