The Research in View (RiV) exhibition showcases a visual representation of scholarship from across disciplines at Mount Saint Vincent University. Dissemination of academic research in academia normally involves the written word published in books or scholarly journals. RiV exhibition participants use a variety of mediums such as mixed media, musical performance, painting, photography, textiles, sculpture, and video compilation to explore new and alternative forms of scholarly communication to connect audiences with their research. RiV encourages intentional, arts-informed practices in research to deepen understanding, enrich scholarship, encourage community partnerships, and enhance public engagement in academia through the creative process.
Delayed for over two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the organizers thank the participants of RiV for their perseverance and dedication in remaining a part of the originally envisioned exhibition. We acknowledge SSHRC funding support for this project. Organized by the MSVU Library & Archives and MSVU Art Gallery, Research in View is on display in the MSVU Library, located in the E. Margaret Fulton (EMF) Communications Centre.
