This subject will involve in-depth reading of the literature in a field of study of interest to the student, under the guidance of a supervisor. Students may concentrate on art historical issues, or may choose to explore the theory or practice of art as it relates to other discipline areas. Areas in which supervision is available include most facets of past and contemporary Australian and international art, design, photography and digital art. This includes modernism, landscape in art, the Italian Renaissance, the psychology of visual perception related to visual communication, the history, theory and aesthetics of photography, textile design, graphic design, performance art, and multimedia art. Contextual issues such as women and art history, modernism and marginalisation, Aboriginality and art, theories of cultural production, art, technology and culture, the body in art, and art and books, are encouraged as options within the reading subject.
