In 2015 Adrian began working on a project with the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art and The British Art Research School at the University of York investigating the meaning and relevance of British art today.  The process began with a short video response to the provocation “There is No Such Thing as British Art?”.  Link to the online publication here: http://www.britishartstudies.ac.uk/issues/issue-index/issue-1/conversation his move to Singapore in late 2017 meant he was not able to continue with the project.
