ARHT1001 - Art and Experience

Semester 1, 2013  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Mary Louise Roberts


ARHT1001 and ARHT1002 offer an introduction to the study of art history and theory as it is taught at the Senior and Honours levels in the department. The subject matter covers a wide range of art practices and media, film, design and costume, and includes the examination of art from different cultures. In each unit of study, historical analysis will be combined with discussions of the different methodologies and approaches to the interpretation and study of these visual materials. Art and Experience: the European Tradition will focus on the history of art and architecture in Western Europe from classical antiquity to the early modern period. A key focus will be on recognising the importance of the social, cultural, political and religious purpose an object or building was designed to serve, and the range of meanings the work was intended to embody - and how these change across time.
