Program description

Course Description

The Master of Contemporary Art serves as a bridge between undergraduate study and independent art practice, as a "refresher" program for artists who have been away from formal study, or as an entry point to further tertiary education for artists who lack formal qualifications but have significant professional experience, including those of recognised ability who have been unable to undertake or complete an Honours year.

The focus of the course is twofold – to develop individual articulation in art practice and to develop an understanding of how this practice intersects with contemporary art.

The emphasis in the first year is on experimentation and the speculative, directed at identifying an area of research to be investigated in depth in the second year. Second year consists of a single, two semester studio project that culminates in assessment and a public presentation in the Masters exhibition, held annually as the concluding event to the academic year.

This is a 200 point program. After the successful completion of the first year (100 points), the course may be exited with a Postgraduate Diploma in Contemporary Art.
