About the subject:

Students develop their understanding of the art world enabling them to develop career strategies and skills in approaching galleries, applying for awards and prizes, and documenting art work and more. Students also learn about gallery representation and how to develop exhibition proposals, artist statements and CVs. Regular gallery visits and talks by gallery directors and artists are a fundamental part of this subject.

The course links closely with each student’s studio practice and interest area and focus on self-devised, proposal-based creative projects and real-world outcomes. Students are encouraged to establish networks and communicate with other artists and arts professionals. The course includes field visits to various art venues (commercial, public and artist-run galleries, studios, collections). Students undertake independent research, learning new ways of thinking about and managing a professional arts practice.

Students engage in critical evaluation of relevant literature theory and artistic practice; to develop an understanding of the artists’ relationship with and responsibility to the art world. The aim of the course is to enable students to connect their studio work in the framework of contemporary art practice and to develop an awareness of career structures and possibilities.

Single unit enrolment is welcome. The subject is made up of three trimester study units:  Art Practice & Theory A, Art Practice & Theory W and Art Practice & Theory S. Study units can be completed in any order. Visual Art experience at Diploma level or higher is the recommended entry prerequisite. Completing all three will complete the subject requirement for the Advanced Diploma of Visual Art.
