In this course students are introduced to the importance of considering the temporality of artworks in contemporary art practice. The duration of artworks has become more and more important because working with time is a way to critically examine and impact how value is established, not only for artworks, but commodities and cultural objects more broadly. The course introduces students to construction methods in wood and challenges them to engage with temporal practices in making their own artworks at the same time. Through various group critique and discussion formats, students develop critical skills to evaluate and understand contemporary artworks in relation to their historical context. Students are introduced to essential skills, techniques and processes of three-dimensional construction and installation and are given group instruction into the use of hand and power tools to construct objects from wood. Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) instruction is an integral part of this course.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- use, create and discuss methods and strategies in Modern and Contemporary art practice;
- make artworks that critically engage with historical and contemporary art practices;
- conduct research into the practices and discourses around Modern and Contemporary Art and apply findings to creative production; and
- substantiate artistic outcomes with research and rationale.
