Artistic expression is intelligible because its creators and audiences share preferences, philosophies and outlooks. These preferences are shaped in artistic and social movements and have often had enduring influence over artistic style and social thinking. This course gives students the opportunity to explore some of the variety of aesthetic approaches, both historical and contemporary and develop understanding of the integral relationship between them, their role in society and realisation in the arts with a view to establishing the meaning and validity of critical judgments concerning creative artworks, and the principles underlying or justifying such judgments.
|Objectives||At the successful completion of this course, students will:
1) be able to accurately explain and analyse the origins of aesthetic movements, preferences and styles
2) demonstrate knowledge of the background social, technological and cultural issues that shape aesthetic preference
3) apply knowledge of aesthetic styles to contemporary creative works
4) engage effectively in the appropriate mixing and interaction of aesthetic preferences in the realisation of creative works.
|Content||Topics may include:
1) historical and contemporary aesthetic styles and codes
2) the process and development of aesthetic systems in society
