This course investigates key research areas and debates in contemporary visual art theory at an advanced level of study. This course will present key contemporary theories that have underpinned art practices both nationally and internationally. This course further develops the student’s understanding of art theory acquired in their first and second years of study. Issues presented in semester 1 will be further developed in Contemporary Art Theory 2.
The conceptual frameworks introduced by this course will provide the context for students thinking about their own practical work, and the broader field of art practice nationally and internationally. Throughout the course students will develop the critical tools which will enable them to reflect upon and theorise research at an advanced level. Students will be presented will a series of topics that explore various historical and contemporary theoretical topics that underpin artistic thought and practice.
