DCAThe Centrespace Gallery, at the Visual Research Centre, is part of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design (DJCAD), located in the lower level of the Dundee Contemporary Arts (DCA).

Exhibitions at DJCAD is a distinctive platform in Scotland for challenging and innovative practices and critical discourse in contemporary art, design and visual culture. By positively advocating the pooling of knowledge from different disciplines, our programme implements a sustained and rigorous critical engagement. Through devoting our four gallery spaces, including the Centrespace Gallery, to original and imaginative methodologies, we support, produce and disseminate the best practices of national and international artists, designers, writers and creative thinkers.

The Visual Research Centre specifically is a unique facility dedicated to visual arts research from initial concepts to final exposition. Through an exciting portfolio of projects, the Visual Research Centre provides a platform for debate around cultural production and is a crucial DJCAD resource for revealing and disseminating research.

At the heart of the Visual Research Centre is the Centrespace Gallery, an experimental flexible studio/gallery where research outcomes can be given their first public airing. The Visual Research Centre 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. And it is also home to DJCAD’s PhD community.
