This conceptual and challenging course develops students' creative, intellectual and technical skills, allowing them to develop a distinct body of work that is critically informed by contemporary art practice and ideas. Students join a dynamic and forward thinking academic community which is critically committed to the dialogue between theory and practice. In year 2 students have the opportunity to exhibit their work in public and participate in a real-life artist’s placement.
In Year 1 you will review your work to date and explore a wide range of art practices alongside discussion of theoretical texts. You will begin to define your own art practice and present your work for exhibition. During Year 2 you will further develop your critical engagement with theory and practice. You will experience working in a post-studio environment and produce work for public exhibition. Year 3 focuses on self-directed art practice, and theoretical interests, and prepares you for life after the course. Assignments include a presentation on work in progress that helps you prepare for your final essay and exhibition.
