Content

In Ideas in Drawing, Painting and Materiality students explore technique and concept through a focus on the body as an enduring subject in art. Investigating key ideas in contemporary art through notions of identity, subjectivity, performativity, mediation and representation students are introduced to the fundamental elements and principles of art through lectures, workshops, studio intensive weeks, critical discussion and seminars. In generating a resolved series of artworks students will be expected to develop concepts, technical and problem solving skills in a workbook/journal that contextualises their ideas in experimentation and reflection. In understanding the workbook/journal as a crucial developmental tool students will work towards developing an art practice that demonstrates technical dexterity and an ability to creatively engage with and critique contemporary society. In doing this it is crucial to investigate the changing nature of the role of the artist in a globalised culture. In this unit and throughout the course, explicitly and implicitly, students will develop their practice with a key question in mind: what is the role of the artist in contemporary society?
