Identify a viable research topic, and systematically develop and present the case study via 2 presentations and 2 x essays (utilizing a range of presentation methods e.g. images, media clips, artifacts, and academic sources).
Conduct research into one or a group of artists involved in an interdisciplinary curated project, event, publication etc., via library, internet, gallery archives etc.
Clearly articulate research processes and findings.
Reflect on, evaluate, and constructively critique one or more artists’ practice.
