It explores relationships between visual arts and the public realm by examining contexts within which art, architecture and design are situated and mediated, ranging from consideration of the professional practice of art historians, within and outside academia, to exploring public realms of print media and the built environment.
Central to the module is the development of subject specific research skills and practices which build throughout the module towards the dissertation.
This MA Art History part 2 module from The Open University UK offers excellent preparation for applying an art historical training to various areas of employment, as it explicitly addresses issues surrounding the public role and presentation of the visual arts in the context of contemporary art and heritage policy and practice.
