Contemporary Art Practice

This programme encourages practices that are speculative and reflective, supporting work in a range of media; it is concerned with ways of learning that are experiential, embodied through and understood by the acquisition of a practice. Students on the programme produce artworks and projects in a family of media, adapting approaches drawn from an increasingly wide array of subject disciplines; the programme also involves the theoretical study of this family of media and approaches, drawing on related fields and methods; media-related disciplines supported by the programme include sculpture, painting and printmaking, photography, a/v and new media; the programme also encompasses approaches to practice that are non media-specific, including intermedia, time-based arts, performance, installation, public art and artwriting.
