Curating Artistic Creativity - MMCS120

This unit is a broad introduction to contemporary arts practice in Australia, covering a wide range of forms and disciplines. The unit looks at contemporary ideas in the arts, the role of the curator, the life and practice of the professional artist, and arts policy and funding. The unit takes its point of view from the conviction that the arts are humankind's greatest cultural repository, and that they contribute to education, spirituality, identity, and cultural continuity. The unit specifically investigates the role of arts in forging an Australian national identity. We pay particular attention to the role of curating artistic creativity in contemporary arts, music, and arts festivals.
