Description

Advertisement

This pathway takes a cross-disciplinary approach to Fine Art, welcoming students working in all media. The pathway works with students with mature practices, challenging established ways of working and developing peer support networks. Drawing upon local, national and international contexts, it focuses on contemporary art practice and its relation to audience.

The course supports both material and dematerialized practices, with a significant number of artists on the course working in relational and event-based art as well as; painting, drawing, object-making, installation, photography, performance and other time-based media. Lectures, seminars and workshops are designed to support wider contextual understanding, research skills and an awareness of professional issues. Students may attend critiques with other post graduate Fine Art courses at Chelsea and Wimbledon, as well as open seminars with other pathways of the Visual Arts Course. The newly opened Peckham Space also offers an opportunity to engage in discussions with commissioned artists and to participate in the workshop programme.

Students on this pathway are highly motivated and independent. Last year they developed projects and collaborations across the course and within UAL. For example Fine Art students took part in projects such as PARK 10, at Cannizaro Park, Wimbledon, Peckham Space, Chelsea Parade Ground, site-specific residencies at Byam Shaw and 'Xhibit' at LCC, as well as gaining UAL and AHRC bursaries for their studies.

They have also worked on a range of external projects including, a curatorial workshop at AutoItalia (artists runs space) and events at Tate, The Roundhouse, The Photographers Gallery and at the Los Gazquez creative retreat in Spain. Students run their own regular Salon, a space for critical discussion, with the South London Gallery and participate in seminars at nearby Flat-Time House (John Latham's archive).

Contents

This pathway will allow you to develop a project from proposal to final exhibition. You will be asked to research the content, materials and technical skills, then produce written and practical work exploring your subject in relationship to contemporary practice. You should be well grounded in relevant aspects of art and be able to define and debate your study proposal.

During the final development and completion of your personal programme attention is given to personal focus, artistic direction and application. The final work is presented in the form of a public exhibition at the College.
