Subject Description
This subject explores the historical and critical ontexts in which art and design objects have been made, seen and understood. It investigates a range of significant art and design artefacts through a sequence of case studies covering 6,000 years of visual culture and ranging from the Gutenberg press, the Yirrkala Bark Petitions, and 'Blue Poles' to Nike Air Jordans and the iPhone. We will examine the role of objects in a wide range of visual media, from painting and photography, museum exhibitions and popular representations on TV and film, to fashion, architecture and other everyday visual and material forms. Students will develop research and communication skills, and be introduced to methodologies in critical, material, and formal visual analysis.

Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Articulate the relationship between art and design objects and their social, cultural and critical contexts
2. Appraise the critical, material and visual impacts of art and design objects
3. Develop critical reading skills and formulate arguments that are substantiated by evidence from appropriate creative and scholarly material
4. Present coherent discussions of art and design objects in a range of forums
