ΙΒ Visual Arts
IB Visual Arts consists of three components; the Process Portfolio, the Comparative Study and the Exhibition. The Exhibition is an internally examined assessment task worth only 40% of the total grade but it is in a way the most important compartment since it unfolds the psyche and the major concerns or preoccupations of the students.
According to the IB rubrics the Visual Art students should display technical resolution, successful communication of ideas and synthesis of form and function. Part of the students’ task is to accompany their works with exhibition texts (which state the title, medium, size and a brief outline of the original intentions of each selected artwork) as well as curatorial rationale. The explanations need to justify the selection, arrangement and exhibition of their artworks within the designated space and reflect on how the exhibition conveys an understanding of the relationship between the artworks and the viewer.
