Chaos & Order Education Kit
26 April, 2018
The Chaos & Order education kit is now available. It has been designed specifically for VCE Art and Studio Arts students completing units 1 – 4. It highlights the relevance of the exhibition Chaos & Order to key objectives and learning outcomes of the curriculum.
Chaos & Order: 120 years of collecting at RMIT celebrates over 80 Australian and international artists in an ambitious survey of the RMIT Art Collection. A riot of painting, sculpture, photography, sound and new media, the exhibition embraces the contradictions inherent in public art collections.
Through providing an in depth analysis and context for six exhibition art works, this kit will assist students in formulating their skills of critical inquiry and visual analysis. These broad frameworks serve as a source of inspiration for students to begin thinking about their own artistic practice and creative ideas while simultaneously highlighting the depth of analysis and research required by students studying VCE and tertiary subjects.
Discussion of the RMIT Art Collection and roles at RMIT Gallery in the education kit will broaden students’ understandings of contemporary art contexts and the inner workings of the art industry.
Chaos & Order is a valuable exhibition for high school, VCE and tertiary students. To make a booking for a free guided tour please contact RMIT Gallery on (03) 9925 1717.
Chaos & Order is on until 9 June 2018.
