On completion of this module, students will have demonstrated that they have some ability to:
exercise self-management skills in managing their workloads and
accommodate change and uncertainty.
present evidence that demonstrates some ability to generate ideas independently
and/or collaboratively in response to set briefs and/or as self-initiated activity.
demonstrate proficiency in observation, investigation, enquiry, visualisation
develop ideas through to outcomes that confirm the student's ability to select and
use materials, processes and environments.
make connections between intention, process, outcome, context, and methods
At the threshold standard, a student's work will have been informed by aspects of
professional practice in their discipline(s). This will be evidenced by some knowledge and
the broad critical and contextual dimensions of the student's discipline(s).
major developments in current and emerging media and technologies in
the significance of the work of other practitioners in their discipline(s).
Exhibition 2 represents the pinnacle of student achievement over three years of study. Within the context of a public exhibition staged in the School of Art, the module allows students to demonstrate the resolution and maturation of both their prescribed and self-directed studies. The expectation, therefore, is that the works will represent their best and most decisive effort. The module concludes a program of self-originated projects developed in Semester 1 of Level 3, and consolidates its skill-, subject- and conceptual-bases. Thus, the work produced for Exhibition 2 ought to reflect a high degree of technical resolution, material soundness and fitness for purpose. Likewise, the subject and conception of the work should be not only appropriately reconciled with the technical and material aspect, but also provide evidence of a single-minded commitment to a field of study. Further to this, evidence of a personal statement will be looked for, being the ability to mould technique and subject according to an individual expressive vision. Students are required to produce a continuity of works of this character, designed to fit a given space and to form a public exhibition. In this respect, the student is challenged to consider ways in which the works might communicate meaning and significance within the public domain. Students will also asked to objectify and articulate the criterion by which the works have been selected for exhibition. Within the context of the tutorials, the student is encouraged to consider their own position in relation to contemporary culture and to historical and contemporary art practice. This is with a view to cultivating a sense of the works' relevance to a sphere outside the immediate and personal experience of the student. Accompanying Exhibition 2: Graduation Show is a catalogue of student work and as part of the module students will prepare a written statement and provide images of their work to prescribed criteria and deadlines. For Module AR32540 students are also expected to produce an additional suite of no more than four related works that result from specific research into their particular technique, concept or line of enquiry
This module promotes self-directed study and focuses upon the conceptual and practical aspects of art practice, the ideas and subject matter, processes, systems, frameworks and precedents governing the processes of making art. Exhibition 2 concludes the program of self-originated projects developed in Semester 1 of Level 3, and consolidates its skill-, subject- and conceptual-bases.
