This course builds on Contemporary Art Practice 2 and 3 courses by addressing studio research within a contemporary art context at an advanced level. In particular, the course focuses on students being competent in identifying, analysing and applying research methodologies within their own art practice and/or within their own writing. This is further enhanced by the course content also providing an informed application of current theoretical discourse and practical examples of research methodologies within the contemporary art field. The course encourages both professional research engagement in order for students to further demonstrate research skills within visual art practice and theory. On completion of this course, students will acquire appropriate skills and resources which will allow them to pursue further studies (Honours and post-graduate).
