This course will examine multifaceted approaches to art practice and aesthetics, positioned within the focus of 20th and 21st century cultural and artistic theories. Students will view and research key artists and the ways in which they articulate conceptual intentions to reach creative outcomes. The knowledge obtained from this course will form the basis for subsequent courses about art and ideas, and provides key information for students engaged in studio-based courses or activity, who will need to become critically reflective of their own work, as practicing artists. This course will also introduce students to discussions about the public reception of artworks, and how works can become a conversation between artist and viewer.
