Contemporary Art Practice (MA)
Artists in the Critical Practice pathway have a focus on exploratory and research driven practices. Working in a responsive, dialogical, critical environment with an emphasis on wider socio-political issues, the graduating students of Critical Practice 2020 critically interrogate art production in relation to urgent socio-political contexts, both questioning and redefining practice. Ideas and themes including performativity, gender(ing), identity, critical race theory and decolonial issues are highlighted and examined in works that span across mediums, from 3D modeling to live-streaming performance, video, sound, and text.
