Project 2: Critical Contexts - CACA5002

Year - 2018

This unit of study concentrates on combining two modes of art practice; studio practice with critical thinking in relation to the contexts within which contemporary artists produce work. Studio practice is individual tutored studio-based artwork which may extend across multiple media. In studio practice, you will develop and present a major contemporary artwork. Critical contexts is an advanced course developed in a seminar and concentrates on the advanced practical, theoretical and material considerations of contemporary art and the relationship with individual studio practice. You will meet with the course coordinator on a weekly basis in a group tutorial situation and make theoretical presentations. Teaching strategies in this unit of study include studio tutorials, studio practice, studio group meetings, studio work review and critique, group seminars, student presentations, site visits and both formal and informal discussion.
