KVB127 Visual Arts Open Studio 2

Unit synopsis

This unit advances on your independent, self-directed art practice. By exploring a range of processual strategies for the practice of contemporary art and identifying its active and emergent conceptual dimensions, you will develop ways of engaging with the possibilities and challenges arising from the practice of contemporary art. The open-ended conditions of current creative practices, their processes, reception, and contribution to society, are diverse, increasingly complex, and inherently multi-layered. The Open Studio model of contemporary visual art practice provides a platform to build a robust and flexible creative skillset. Building on learning completed in Visual Arts Open Studio 1, you will expand your individual visual art practice through the exploration of creative processes, the application of 'art thinking'; and the development of a conceptual/contextual framework to support your studio activities.
