Saturday 13 March, 9am – 12pm
Students: Visual Art, years 11 – 12
Cost: Free (Bookings essential). Registrations close Friday 5 March
This Saturday intensive brings together senior Visual Art students to apply curriculum learning in the gallery, practice questions in a collaborative and supportive environment, and learn key theory with lead educators and Space YZ curator, Daniel Mudie Cunningham.
Students will use practice questions from past HSC papers to analyse unfamiliar works on exhibition as part of Space YZ, working with peers as well as support from C-A-C education and curatorial teams to refine how we arrive at our written responses. Our term 1 program also includes introductory art theory on technology in art, providing a grounding in key terms, common themes and historical markers to enhance students’ case studies and extended responses.
About the exhibition: Space YZ
In times of alarmingly diminishing art school options in the tertiary and higher education systems Space YZ, curated by Daniel Mudie Cunningham, draws inspiration from the visual arts legacy of Western Sydney University. From the first graduating class in 1986 to the final cohort as the curtain closed in 2009, the art school was a pioneering hub for experimentation and risk-taking across a broad variety of media.
Space YZ includes early work by Brook Andrew, Liam Benson, Raquel Ormella, Savanhdary Vongpoothorn and Justene Williams among many others.
