Subject Overview:

This subject extends the emphasis on developing a self-initiated body of works to be explored over the entire semester. An open studio situation provides opportunities for students to address specific aesthetic and technical challenges. The student continues to experiment with a range of methodologies, tools and, if appropriate, the use of digital technologies. Issue-based and conceptual problems form part of a comprehensive studio practice aimed at developing independent work strategies. Each student is encouraged to formulate a flexible non-assessable work plan to support this process. Use of the College exhibition spaces gives students an awareness of issues related to the presentation of work for public viewing. Students are required to inform their work with a knowledge of national and international contemporary art practice, participate in slide talks, group tutorials, specialist sessions and to visit relevant exhibitions.
