Current Practice B (Out-going) offers a unique opportunity to engage with contemporary arts practice, ideas and discourse by attending a major international contemporary arts event held overseas or interstate. The unit draws on multiple definitions of the term ‘current’: belonging to the time actually passing; passing from one to another; circulating and flowing, offering a first-hand learning experience that promotes cultural and artistic exchange, reflection and understanding through contact with internationally respected practitioners, institutions and culturally significant sites.
This is an elective unit delivered by CAM staff with the support of international partner institutions. Learning is structured through an intensive seminar and arts event engagement program, group discussions, field reporting and assessment tasks relevant to visual, performing and media arts.
