SCULPTURE & COMBINED MEDIA BACHELOR OF ARTS (HONOURS) IN FINE ART


What is the programme about?


Sculpture and Combined Media (S&CM) at Limerick School of Art and Design is a vibrant, fresh, professional and experimental programme. Students develop a strong sculptural skill-set but also become expert within the broader field of cultural production such as curation, public art, commissions, exhibition and cultural event planning, professional promotion and developing education workshops. The programme is structured to respond to the changing nature of cultural production and incorporates the use and understanding of new media and materials such as video, performance art, public art, internet based media, installation, sound art and photography.


The programme prepares students to be independent, critical and to develop strong training in sustaining a practice in the social and cultural domain. A major strength is that the programme always considers the public and audience. It instils in the student the importance and an awareness of research, presentation, proposal writing and documentation of practice – which is invaluable as a professional artist.


Public commissions are a significant aspect of this programme, where students work actively on large-scale public art commissions with bodies such as the Limerick Civic Trust and the Emergency Services. It also involves student work on large scale cultural productions such as the 2014 collaboration with Fuerza Bruta, the Argentinian physical theatre event for City of Culture. The programme also encourages students to look at how other traditional media such as film, theatre, dance and music relate to contemporary sculptural practice.
