Critical Theory in Contemporary Art Practice


Over the last two decades, the study of art history in art education has been complemented and often superseded by the study of critical theory, while art theorists and critics bring political, social and cultural theories to bear on the interpretation of art. What kind of knowledge and skills do contemporary artists need? What is the relationship between art and entertainment? How do we recognise art? These are just some of the questions we will address as you explore and examine the historical and critical context in which contemporary art is made, circulated, seen and understood.
