With emphasis on the developing awareness of how your work relates to a broader range of contexts and practices, and on developing your practice as a form of experimental research within a collectively defined context; this unit encourages artists to take risks within your work, and to evaluate your research in relation to other ideas, theories, histories and practices.

This exhibition builds upon the explorations of the previous unit, supporting the development of your ongoing individual practice within the context of collectively organised off-site and on-site exhibitions. You will be based in the studio and, through tutorials and group discussions, will be encouraged to engage critically with the intersection of your own work and the work of others.

As your work becomes increasingly independent, crits, theory seminars, technical workshops and professional development sessions will enhance your ability to articulate the basis and context of your work; this includes a collectively conceived and organized group exhibition and/or event at an off-site venue, and an accompanying publication.

This builds upon a critical awareness of my workin a broader contexts of contemporary practice, by specifically exploring strategies for the exhibition of your work and its documentation. By this stage it will be expected that you will have begun to establish a coherent practice and will be selective in the application of conceptual and practical skills. Your work should by this stage be starting to demonstrate an awareness of its place in the world, and a sense of the contribution it wishes to make to the specific contexts in which it seeks to operate.
