Creative Practice: Producing and Curating (P4039)

15 credits, Level 4

Spring teaching

The Creative Practice: Producing and Curating module will look at aspects of production and consider creative media forms in relation to contemporary themes, intended message and (inter) disciplinary context. It will look at technology in relation to evolving creative practices as well as exhibition/ distribution and further consider selection in relation to intention, audience and modes of consumption: from screenings, to installations, happenings and (Mobile) digital devices / platforms. The module lectures will be complimented by seminars in which discussion with wider scope and more in-depth focus is undertaken, looking at specific examples of professional exhibition in a range of disciplines: Art and design, commercial portfolio, gallery, museums and the urban environment. 

You will undertake weekly exercises employing different strategies for producing work using a variety of methods and exploring a range of curated outputs (in line with seminar themes above), recording and reflecting on them weekly in the log.
