ARTH 5203EX - Studies in Australian Art

External - Semester 1 - 2017

The online course focuses around the large collection of Australian art at the Art Gallery of South Australia. Discussion and analysis of the art in the online environment will be in terms of the principal issues underpinning Australian art and recent re-readings of particular works. Topics to be explored include colonial art, later nineteenth-century nationalist and Federation art, the rise of modernism particularly among women artists, abstraction, minimalism, conceptualism, the emergence of Central and Western Desert painting and trends in contemporary Australian art.
