Details of Learning Activities
In the first weeks of the Program and in negotiation with supervising academic staff students will develop an initial Project Proposal document. The Project document will foreshadow research paths to be undertaken by the student and will be formally reviewed by the student and supervising academic staff midway through the Semester. Through the course of the Semester the Project document will be formed to infer areas of proposed conceptual investigation, practice based enquires and will scope and link all studio based Courses and activities undertaken by the student. Research, reflections, and appropriate notes resulting from access to Theory Courses will also be developed within the Project document.
Exhibition Practice will reflect the investigation developed within the each student’s individual Project document. Idea development related to the installation and exhibition of visual art works will be developed through individual tutorials.
All students will be required to undertake trial installations during the semester. This will occur under the guidance of academic staff with expertise in the field of installation, developing an understanding in the student of the role of installation both conceptually and visually.
Students may be required to help plan and assist with installations and exhibitions developed by visiting international artists involved in the School of Art Artist in Residence Program (AIRP).
Week 1 to 17:
• Individual tutorial advice regarding installation and exhibition practices, including individual times when students are required to develop and undertake a site-specific installation.
• Where required assisting international visiting artists with exhibition development.
Week 18: Assessment of installation of student work.
Overview of Assessment
Formative and holistic assessment with successfully presented exhibition.
In relation to a negotiated and extensively developed project proposal, students will: initiate and develop a substantial exhibition project; evaluate, select and safely exhibit original artworks; conduct and appraise the exhibition project.
Students will present a substantial and resolved body of work (folio), informed by the research undertaken within the Project document, demonstrating through installation an informed and thoughtful approach to exhibition practice. Assessment will be conducted by a panel of Academic staff, in turn providing a written response to the student relating to the overall folio presentation. The written response from the Assessment panel will reflect on the intrinsic nature of the folio in relation to all areas of studio practice, installation and exhibition practice, in turn reflecting the conceptual investigation and research undertaken within the Project document.
Students are required to present a report of the time assisting international visiting artists with exhibition development and installation.
Students are also required to present professionally documented evidence of any individual installations undertaken during the semester.
