This exhibition presents work in progress by students developing practice-based research projects in the Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours, Master of Fine Art and Design and Masters (Research) programs at the School of Creative Arts. Students in these programs strive for excellence in a theoretically rigorous, locally and globally contextualised, self-directed program of study. The work presented here is at an exciting stage of development: where the artist’s intention is evident over resolution, and potential is prioritised over finish.

The Honours and Masters (Research) programs are aimed at preparing students for research training at doctoral level, as well as developing their respective practices as artists, designers or writers. Emphasis is placed on a spirit of excellence and a strong sense of independent enquiry. Experimentation is encouraged, as is a firm commitment to the written and oral articulation of art theory and its integration into art practice.

Honours (Professional) and the Master of Fine Art and Design are professionally oriented programs, aimed at facilitating technical and conceptual development through studio practice and/or professional placement in an arts related business or enterprise.

In these programs students are able to specialise in one of the following areas: Art and Design Theory, Curatorial Studies, Gallery Practices, Drawing, Time Based Media, 3D Design, Painting, Photography, Printmaking, Sculpture or Visual Communication.
