From Art History to Art Today 2023


Weekly on Thursdays, 1.30pm–3.30pm

with Claire Chamberlain

beginning 9 February 2023


Introducing you to the world of art and its history.

Tracing the origins of modern art through the works of 19th-century ‘movers and shakers’, this course examines how local and global histories shaped pivotal movements in 20th-century art. Students will gain an understanding of the contexts that drove the art of yesteryear, and form correlations to developments in contemporary art in the post-digital age.

Course content may respond to current exhibitions, events and the interests of students. Comprising an evolving series of tutor-led discussions and gallery visits, Art History to Art Today provides a relaxed learning environment with no formal assessments.

*Please note, the listed course fee includes an online transaction surcharge. To avoid the surcharge, payment can be made via bank transfer, in which case the fee is $1400.00. See here for details.
