Subject Description
Contemporary art and design continue to go beyond the limits of traditional practice. How and why has this come about? How do we make sense of and evaluate these innovations in our field of study? This subject examines the future of art and design in global political, economic, technological, and cultural contexts. Key themes include art and design that engages with political, cultural, social, and environmental transformations; interdisciplinary practices in art and design; real world contexts and the breaking down of the boundaries of the gallery and studio through relational practices, activist and socially-engaged art and design. A key feature of this subject is fieldwork and visits to art and design exhibitions.

Subject Learning Outcomes

1. identify key themes in the future of art and design
2. appraise the impacts of innovation and interdisciplinarity in art and design
3. undertake real-world case studies and fieldwork in art and design
