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).
Accompanying the Graduate Show is a catalogue of student work. As part of this module you will be asked to design your page of the catalogue. (The content can be adapted from the statement produced for Research and Process in Practice.) This entails determining an image and text for reproduction and fitting both within a prescribed format. You will also be required to produce captions and labels for the show to a professional standard (The format for all accessory components will be communicated to you during Semester 2).
A. Inculate an awareness of criteria determining a coherent body of exhibitable work
B. Engage in the professional preparation and installation of the exhibitable work
C. Develop a personal, individual, and imaginative response to subject matter
D. Acquire and refine appropriate technical dexterity and stylistic concerns
E. Produce a body or work that demonstrates conceptual and technical coherence, and the ability to sustain a commitment to subject over a period.
F. Possess a developed awareness of past and contemporary art relevant to their work
G. Possess a productive response to work
H. Challenge and go beyond the bounds of the module/course's expectations
I. Acquire knowledge of issues, theory and ideas pertaining to their work
J. Articulate verbally the criteria by which the body of work is made and should be judged.
K. Develop analytical and diagnostic prowess
L. Take risks and risk failure
M. Define a field of action
In Semester 1 all students should become familiar with the context of the exhibition (in terms of size and space), the technique of hanging (and its implications for the construction and presentation of works), and lighting. Some of these issues will have already been addressed in Professional Practice 1. The aim is to design an exhibition appropriate to the exhibiting context. During this semester, you should also work on preparatory studies (where appropriate) for the finished work.
The syllabus represents a suggested programme of work. It is given as a general guide for student and tutor. It need not be maintained rigidly; indeed, it may be superseded by a very different programme agreed between the two parties. What is important is that some form of schedule is developed so that a body of work that fulfils the aims and Outcomes of the module is produced within the allotted time.
- Self directed project work - through the production of exhibitable work and a portfolio of preparatory studies
- IT and information handling - in the compilation of the catalogue page and supporting items, such as captions and labels.
- Writing in an academic context - through the proudction of a statement duly copy-edited and proof read.
- Oral skills - in the context of individaul and assessment tutorials
- Careers needs awareness- N/A
- Self-Management - through a series of one-to-one tutorials in which the principles of matching a program of work to a fixed period of time are imparted. The student's success in this respect is measured by the extent to which the program of work was completed within the prescribed time.
- Group activity - in the development of the catalogue and installation of the exhibition
