PRE-REQUISITES: Students wishing to take a History of Art module as an elective at level two must have completed at least 20 credits from the following: ARTF1005, ARTF1006, ARTF1007, ARTF1008, ARTF1041, ARTF1042 or ARTF 2000This module examines the contexts in which different sculptural objects were made and how they may now be viewed differently. Some works may originally have had a particular public meaning or series of meanings, but these have now been transformed into a particular culture of 'the collectable object' whether for private individuals or within a museological framework with its specified definitions. Other objects may have been made for a particular public forum from a strictly private context. All objects studied will bear witness to the different understandings attached to them by their changed audiences. Key critical texts will be used to highlight these developments and study will be made of how these and other strategies have affected the objects' cultural existence.Assessment: 1 x 1hour exam (50%) and 1 x 2,000 - 3,000 word essay (50%)

Syllabus

This module will examine the contexts in which different sculptural objects were made and how they may now be viewed differently. Some works may originally have had a particular public meaning or series of meanings, but these have now been transformed into a particular culture of 'the collectable object' whether for private individuals or within an museological framework with its specified definitions. Other objects may have been made for a particular public forum from a strictly private context. All objects studied will bear witness to the different understandings attached to them by their changed audiences. Key critical texts will be used to highlight these developments and study will be made of how these and other strategies have affected the objects' cultural existence. A detailed syllabus of weekly topics and readings will be provided in advance of the first session.
