Defining Practices

Under the guidance of Julia Flatman, Senior Associate Lecturer, School of Visual Arts, and as part of their unit: Defining practice 1, Level 4 Fine Art Students were given the opportunity to develop work in response to MoDiP.

The learning outcomes of the unit include being able to:

  • demonstrate an enhanced understanding of the nature and character of fine art;
  • show awareness of the relationship between practice and context;
  • apply technical knowledge and skills in the realisation, documentation and presentation of work.
Each student responded in his or her own way but four themes emerged:

  • the meaning of collecting and collections;
  • the re-contextualisation implicit in any museum display;
  • the values associated with artefacts in museums;
  • plastics, MoDiP’s focus.
The works by the students can currently be viewed in the library cases and will be on display until the end of the summer.  They can also be seen in the following blog posts.
