Upon completion of this module, students will be able to demonstrate:
1. A basic familiarity with the city's principal museums.
2. A critical awareness of the history of these institutions, and the way in which their architecture and display strategies colour the experience of works often made and originally shown in very different settings.
3. A basic understanding of several different periods of art across several media.
The exact content of this module varies each year as the works addressed must be on public view in Dublin's museums. It generally runs from the pre-historic gold on view in the National Museum through the architecture of recent additions to the city's museum buildings. Although much of the art addressed is Irish, European painting and Asian art are also always included.
