The Travelling Art Studio is an intensive study abroad subject that exposes students to a deeper and contextual understanding of the production and presentation of art in an international context. Students will travel to an international destination in Europe or Asia where they will have first-hand experience with historical and contemporary art, artists, galleries and museums. Students will be challenged to think beyond the limitations of their current art practice with emphasis placed on analysing and discussing art and its historical and institutional contexts. Through a series of field trips and tutorials, students will generate new work to be exhibited upon return to Melbourne. The Travelling Art Studio provides students with an opportunity to experience study in the context of another culture, build contacts and networks and consider the possibility of their art work contributing to and within a larger discourse.

Intended learning outcomes

At the completion of the subject, student's should be able to:

  • show evidence of engagement with field trips, discussions, lectures and exhibitions in a thoughtful and organised manner;
  • creatively evaluate and document historical and contemporary forms of art experienced during the traveling studio;
  • critically reflect on local and international expectations and approaches of visual artists of the 21st century;
  • generate new work drawing on international perspective.
