This research degree offers an environment where the investigation of ideas and material practice pertinent to artistic research sits alongside and informs the production of art.
Central to the program is a balance between studio practice and the conceptual and theoretical concerns that underpin the making of art.
You will work with installation, sculpture, ceramics, hybrid and spatial practices, sound, performance, media arts, video, painting, printmaking, drawing, photography, gold and silversmithing and object based practice. You are encouraged to consider the artistic, cultural and social position of their research and to draw upon trans-disciplinary practices and enquiries.
Candidates are from diverse backgrounds, age groups and nationalities, including leading art practitioners, students graduating directly from undergraduate programs and artists returning to postgraduate study to enliven their practice.
You will undertake a major project that culminates in an exhibition, performance or presentation of work for assessment, accompanied by a detailed proposal and visual and sonic documentation of the work undertaken during the program.
The minimum requirements for admission to a master by research program are:
At RMIT a grade of credit represents academic achievement of 60% or higher.
