CRITICAL & CONTEXTUAL STUDIES IN ART PRACTICE: ONLINE COURSE
Art + Critiqueintegrates practice and theory in a comprehensive programme that emphasises critical inquiry in art practice and research. The course will help you develop your practice and research in a series of lectures, seminars, workshops, tutorials and off-site visits, culminating in a final project presentation. It will provide you with a solid background in the histories and discourses of contemporary art. It will help you address questions about your practice and its context – about what art is, how it is judged and how it relates to society – with opportunities for discussion, exchange and critique.
ART&CRITIQUE was a peer-led alternative art education network dedicated to critical engagement with art practice, theory and research. It was founded in November 2015 and based at The Field and LARC. We employed collaborative, co-operative and collective models of pedagogy and organisation and fostered alternative models of art education in a series of public events.
