Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Offered jointly by the University of Adelaide and the Art Gallery of South Australia, students are able to study the collections of the Gallery, with teaching provided by curatorial and academic staff at both institutions and by national experts. On-campus classes are held after-hours, with lectures and tutorials held at the University, combined with 'hands-on' workshops at the Art Gallery. By exercising the eye as well as the mind, students are able to thoroughly explore - in situ or virtually, the rich collections and exhibitions of the Art Gallery of South Australia. Students are encouraged to consider issues and questions reflected in specific works of art, including their: origins and fabrication; critical reception; material composition; mixed fortunes in the history of taste; subject matter; place in the life's work of the artist who made them; and so on. Students become familiar with the issues involved in curating exhibitions and the principal questions associated with connoisseurship. They will develop the research skills necessary to investigate essential issues in art history, including skills in visual analysis.
