Dr Steven Paige

Senior Lecturer & Subject Leader for Postgraduate Studies

Dr Steven Paige is Senior Lecturer & Course Leader for Postgraduate Studies and Subject Tutor on MA Fine Art, at Plymouth College of Art.

He maintains his practice as an artist, incorporating installation, video, print, performance, drawing and artist publishing. He explores ideas around instruction, and how the body can engage with recent and historic artefacts to generate new knowledge. He attempts to reanimate historic sources through re-enactment strategies where repeating, rhythm, memory and failure test how and when we do and don't learn. Recent practice research has been in exploring moving image archives and their potential in art-making - drawn both from analogue and digital sources.

He is keenly interested in the voice of the artist, and how this manifests in research, practice, writing, events, dialogues through commissions, online projects, residential exchanges, curatorial projects and artist-led activity. He has also worked and has strong relationships with galleries and cultural organisations across the South West, including Tate St Ives, Newlyn and Exchange Gallery, KARST, Back Lane West, Plymouth Arts Centre, Exeter Phoenix, Arnolfini and Spike Island.

Recent projects & exhibitions include AHRC IPS Kluge Fellowship, Library of Congress, Washington DC, USA, 2017, We Lost Our Tails, Proto Gallery / M E N, Hoboken New Jersey, USA, 2016, Let's Go Bowling, Plymouth Arts Centre, UK, 2016, Plymouth Contemporary Open, Peninsula Arts, Plymouth University, UK, 2016, A Treatise on Beasts (after Physiologus), Forum, Exeter University, UK, 2015, Moral Development, Motorcade Flashparade, BV Studios, Bristol, UK, 2013.

Steven has a BA (Hons) and MA in Fine Art and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education. He currently sits on the AIR Council, an advisory committee to a-n's The Artist Information Company and completed his AHRC 3D3 Practice Research PhD at Plymouth University in 2019.
