On successful completion of this module students should be able to:
Identify a viable research topic, and systematically develop and present the case study via 2 x presentations and 2 x essays (utilizing a range of presentation methods e.g. images, media clips, artifacts, and academic sources).
Conduct research into the conception and realization of an interdisciplinary curated project, event, publication etc., via library, internet, gallery archives, interviews, field study, site visits etc.
Clearly articulate research processes and findings.
Reflect on, evaluate, and constructively critique a curated interdisciplinary project.
Understand what motivates a curator and organization, institution, funding body etc to invest in a project by enquiring into how and why does it develops, and expand upon the creative programme or portfolio of the individual or organization.
It continues to encourage the student to ‘join up’ elements of their optional and chosen taught modules offered within the scheme towards a greater understanding of how their multi/inter-disciplinary learning can fit and work together.
The module encourages the students’ understanding of the development of a project from its conception to its realization, including consideration of audiences, by carrying out primary research into their case study via interviews, studio and site visits, and field research.
Through a deeper and broader understanding of the case studies, students will learn how to more thoroughly contextualise their learning within a wider contemporary interdisciplinary critical discourse, and develop research that directly connects and informs their developing self-directed creative practice.
An example of an interdisciplinary exhibition from a Fine Art perspective could be Glasgow international 2016 ; Festival of Contemporary Art Directed by Sarah McCroy. An example from a film perspective could be Amalgams at the New Room/John Wesley Chapel, Bristol, co- curated by Kim Knowles.
