Art, Site, Performance FFA369


Using the wild and tamed spaces of Tasmania for inspiration and investigation, this unit introduces recent histories and critical theories of site, environment and place, as expressed in the visual and performing arts as single or multidisciplinary practice. There will be a strong emphasis on concepts of community, public, place and collaboration. Themes through which these may be explored include: site-specificity; arts and environmentalism; performativity and place; art in public places; collaboration and community; tourism and art trails; working with sites; commemoration and memory places; sound spaces; and ephemerality.
