- Corporate body
The Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design Visual Research Centre (VRC) was based at Dundee Contemporary Arts until 2018. The Visual Research Centre is a unique facility dedicated to visual arts research from initial concepts to final exposition. Through an exciting portfolio of projects, VRC provides a platform for debate around cultural production and is a crucial DJCAD resource for revealing and disseminating research. At the heart of the VRC is Centrespace, an experimental flexible studio/gallery where research outcomes can be given their first public airing. VRC also houses the Centre for Artists Books and Visual Publishing, a unique artists' book collection and specialist printing production facility. The Rewind research project archive, which has conserved early British video art, can be viewed in the Rewind Microcinema. VRC is also home to DJCAD's PhD community.
