Subject outline

Exhibiting cultureĀ 3 extends the engagement in and with the curatorial space, in conjunction with La Trobe University's exclusive partnerships with nationally and internationally renowned institutions as a way to transform learning. Engaging in the experience of a unique, curated exhibition that is contextualised with a range of arts disciplines and creative practices, such as art history, social history, archaeology, philosophy, law, textual studies, education and politics, allows for critical and creative responses.
Attending to the experience of the exhibition is a way to critically question how it is curated; what types of knowledge does it produce; by what criteria can an exhibition be evaluated, and how successful is this exhibition as a whole? This subject consolidates the immersive gallery-based experience with relevant contemporary and historic lectures, learning involvements and activities that afford a deepening engagement in inquiry, critical questioning, and responding in ways that evaluate the experience, a theme, a period, an artist, a significant individual, a movement, or something else.
