Students will use the outcome of the project feedback from semester one to determine the development of a public art project for this semester. Additionally, students will be required to look externally with a view to engage in a real project, either offered through the university, or set up by the student and by negotiation with the programme teaching staff. Engagement with local communities, commissioning agencies, and other groups connected to Public Art projects will be a feature of this semester.
This module is designed to bring together contemporary practice developments
through practical (studio) engagement developed from a personally developed (series
of) project(s). This could include national and international competitions, exhibitions
and where possible live briefs. Students will:
deal with the complex issues of the evolving nature of the specialism;
demonstrate an advanced understanding of issues that face practitioners
through the presentation of visual work;
further develop work in their chosen specialism from the previous module,
shows a considered collaboration with areas of industry and/or culture, this may
include the needs of external clients appropriate to the specialism chosen.
consider the outcomes of this module as preparation for the final stage of the
Students will negotiate, through a learning agreement, a (series) of project(s) with their
supervisor and module leader, which demonstrates in-depth understandings of
contemporary professional practice within, and external to, their specialist subject area.
Underpinning this practical work, theoretical concepts will be explored, including practice-
based theoretical/cultural/technical concepts.
Teaching and contact time 45 hours, which will be delivered through a combination of
guest lectures, seminars, external visits and presentations with tutorials both face-to-face
and on-line. Students will be allocated a supervisor from this stage of the programme and
