Do you have a minute to explore the arts?




Esteemed artist, writer, and lecturer, Dr. Mike Cooter will survey art exhibition histories and contemporary debates around art exhibitions. The seminar will be contextualized by continual references to specific case studies, considering closely entwined relationships between exhibitions, design, architecture, politics, and commerce. You will discuss the practicalities of exhibition-making and consider how artwork speaks through context – and how this relationship can be structured. In addition, this seminar will explore ways in which the field is evolving and examine new dynamic approaches to exhibition-making.

Where Do We Go From Here?               - Dexter Dalwood

An Introduction to Contemporary Art

World renowned artist Dexter Dalwood will lead a small group of select artists exploring contemporary artists and art forms through the examination of critical works. Participants will gain a better vantage point to view contemporary art’s dynamic trajectory, exploring text, pop-culture and film, that have had a dramatic impact on the arts. The aim of this seminar will be to push participants to think harder about the decisions they make concerning their own practice and to better understand what they are making art for in the first place. At the end of the course, students will have acquired a comfort level with artworks that might have previously seemed challenging or inaccessible.

This seminar is by application only.

Art and Technology: From AI to NFTs

New technologies are fast changing the way art is made, enjoyed, and traded. From artificial intelligence (AI) to non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to the metaverse, the rules of engagement are being radically redefined as we speak. This course charts the changing reality of contemporary digital culture by studying our new aesthetics in light of more familiar histories of art.  Course participants will gain an understanding of how artists are incorporating technology into their practice, how museums and galleries are rewriting the rules of display, the potential of the blockchain as a new art commercial ecosystem, and how NFTs can unite fine art with cryptoculture.  This course includes existing examples from the heart of the NFT conversation and concludes with a short project for students to apply their knowledge.
