EXHIBITING CULTURE B

HUS3ECB

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This is a gallery-based subject, underpinned by La Trobe's exclusive partnerships with nationally and internationally renowned institutions. It is designed to deepen learning across a range of arts disciplines and creative practices, such as art history, archaeology, 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; 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? Attendance is required at the particular location in which the partner gallery is located, for the 5-6 day face-to-face component. This location may vary from instance to instance, so students should consult with the subject coordinator. All travel and accommodation costs associated with this subject will be at the students expense.
