Passages: Art and Encounter - Fine Art Studio 3
In this course you will develop your emerging practice as contemporary art employing and disrupting conventions of making and extending ideas of authorship and agency beyond the studio to exhibition. We are in a critical time where histories and narratives are being challenged and rethought/reactivated. A lot of this work is being done by artists testing the idea of art as an experiential threshold. You may explore personal, public or political ideas relevant to your studiowork leading to the development of resolved and self-directed projects. The course is framed by theories of the viewer and the art object, how meaning is generated within the contexts of local & global histories, exhibition spaces and artist initiatives. You will position and test new ways of making your work, navigating the path from studio to installation .

Wonderlust: Studio as Research - Fine Art Studio 5
In this course you will explore and research ideas of contemporary art practice that may be medium specific, or cross various media. Your thinking may form through almost any strategy of making: from picture making, narrative, figuration or installation to time-based practices or event-based work. You will investigate thematic and self-directed projects that address meaning within the production and exhibition capacity of your emerging art practice. Wonderlust is the desire to be in a heightened state of wonder, so in responding to this idea of wonder, and wandering, you will be given opportunities to work through experimental ideas, practices and processes. You will investigate thematic and self-directed projects to consider ideas of what an art practice and the dynamics of an art practice could be in terms of how ideas may be evolving within our current times, leading to the development of resolved projects.
