Art History and Film Studies

Summary

The department of Art History and Film Studies was founded in 1967 as part of the Power Institute of Fine Arts, and initially concerned itself with the history of painting, sculpture and architecture of Europe, with some reference to Australia. Since then it has responded to the radical transformations in the nature of art history itself and to the explosion of ‘visual studies’, taking in the areas of film, television, digital technology, photography, design, costume, style and cultural studies.  The department has also responded to its geographical and cultural location by introducing study and research into Aboriginal and Asian art.
