Module 503 - Overview

MCP 503 FALL/SPRING
“Critical Framework 2/2″

Source and research a range of conceptual and critical frameworks within an interdisciplinary context, identify and analyse the features of these critical frameworks in relation to the field of study, independently articulate and critically discuss these frameworks in relation to selected practitioners and art practices in a draft for a piece of critical writing (draft of research paper).

Develop a coherent critical framework within which to produce, conceptualise and interrogate contemporary art practices—including your own—to communicate a developing critical position through a presentation.

As part of this process choose 8-10 selected practitioners (historical through contemporary) to trace how ideas, methods, presentation have developed over time, and write a half page on each artist to investigate/integrate their practice into your broader knowledge and understanding.
