EXHIBITING CULTURE A

CRA2ECA

2015

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Exhibiting Culture is an immersive, gallery-based subject, underpinned by La Trobe University's exclusive partnership with nationally and internationally renowned institutions. The subject is designed to deepen learning across a range of arts disciplines and creative practices, such as art history, social history, archaeology, philosophy, law, textual studies, education and politics, via the experience of a unique, curated exhibition. While the subject content will vary in relation to the specific exhibition in which it is embedded, it will also address the following broad questions: what type of exhibition is this; what holds this collection of cultural objects together; is it organised around a theme, a period, an artist, a significant individual, a movement, or something else; how does the exhibition direct inquiry and engagement; what types of knowledge does it produce; by what criteria can an exhibition be evaluated, and how successful is this exhibition as a whole?
