Module overview

This module is the first taken by all students on the MA Fine Art programme. Through it you will develop your art, in theory and in practice, within the wider context of an increasingly globalised contemporary fine art world.

Your output to this module will reflect the approaches of your chosen mode of art practice, in whatever medium you employ; drawing, painting, sculpture, video, performance, text, digital, etc. The module supports all art activity, regardless of medium. It provides you with a context, and support, to explore new dimensions of your art work while establishing a clear understanding of the relation of that work to the larger context of contemporary fine art.

The intellectual consideration of your own and others’ art ideas takes place within a challenging and creative environment that values the diversity of practices that constitute art today.
